Spellbound Children’s Bookshop wants to partner with your school! We believe that a school partnership is a critical community partnership, and just one more way that we can accomplish our mission of raising lifelong readers who are curious, imaginative and independent thinkers. By partnering with us you can take advantage of our intimate knowledge of books for kids and teens and keep the dollars local! Here are just some of the benefits we can provide:
Spellbound offers 20% off retail for most books purchased for library or classroom use. Just call us or use the contact form on our website to give us a list of titles and quantities, and we’ll get you a quote right away.
Spellbound works with publishers to bring authors to speak at schools. Many award-winning children’s authors are local to Asheville or may come through on book tour, and there is no better way to get kids excited about books than through a presentation with a live author!
Library or Classroom Book Drive
For schools working on stocking their library or classrooms with books, Spellbound can create a page on our website featuring your school’s wish list. We can work with you to publicize the school’s book drive to parents and other supporters, who can purchase books in the store or online during the drive period. The featured books are offered at a 10% discount and we will deliver them to the school free of charge.
Summer Reading/Required Reading Lists
Schools or individual teachers can contact Spellbound to register their summer reading lists or other required reading lists, and Spellbound can make sure to have books on the list available. We can also post the lists on our website.
Spellbound can set aside a day, weekend, or other period as an in-store book fair for your school. Shoppers who mention the school’s name while checking out (in the store or on our website) during the fundraising period will have 20% of their purchase donated back to the school as a store credit.
Spellbound can also provide a uniquely curated selection of books for book fairs at your school. We’ll develop a title list appropriate for your students’ reading levels, price range, and special interests. We can also offer an online purchase option for book fairs. Spellbound will donate 20% of all book fair sales back to the school as a store credit, providing even more literacy opportunities for students.
Spellbound’s years of experience and advance knowledge of forthcoming books can be a wonderful resource for teachers and librarians. We’ll come to your school, present the latest releases to you and take orders so that you can stay ahead of the curve and have the newest books as soon as they are available!
We also sell the Go Local card. Sales of the card support the Asheville City Schools Foundation. We offer a 10% discount on in-stock items with presentation of the Go Local card at time of purchase (not to be combined with other discounts).
