Welcome Teachers and Librarians!
We love working with you to encourage a love of reading and to give all children access to great books where they can see themselves in stories and explore worlds beyond their own. Our Children's & Young Adult Book Specialists have over 30 years combined experience and knowledge of children's literature. We'd love to help you find just-right books for your students and classroom programs.
Mrs. Dalloway's School Sales Program: Our School Sales Program offers a 20% discount to teachers and librarians for books to support classroom curriculum and library collections. Books can be purchased in the store or online from our website. To enroll in our school sales program, please contact Jennifer Gordon: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Orders: We are happy to special order single or multiple copies of books for your classroom. Our turnaround time can be quite speedy, often within 24-48 hours. Orders placed at least two weeks in advance receive 20% discount; orders with a shorter lead time receive 15% discount. Please send special orders to Jennifer Gordon: email@example.com.
Author Visits: Mrs. Dalloway's helps bring authors and illustrators into area schools for exciting and dynamic author visits. Some of the amazing authors we've brought to local schools include, Kwame Alexander, Mac Barnett, Annie Barrows, Pablo Cartaya, Grace Lin, Jason Reynolds and Judd Winick. We produce pre-order forms to help promote the event and generate book sales. For more information about coordinating an author visit at your school, please contact Rebecca Husband: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wish Lists: Let your students' families know what books you'd like for your classroom by creating a wish list on our website. For more information about setting up an online wish list, please contact email@example.com.
Annual School Benefit Fundraiser: November 9 - 11, 2018:
This is a great way to raise money for your school and have families buy books for your classroom or library! All you need to do is create a wish list and encourage your students' families and anyone else you know to shop at Mrs. Dalloway's (at the store or online) during the fundraiser weekend. Your school collects the receipts and then Mrs. Dalloway's writes a check to your school for 20% of the pre-tax total. You get the books you want, and your school receives a cash donation. Win-win!
Teachers: Don't forget to make a wish list so your students' families can buy you the books you'd really like. We'll help you manage your wish lists online and remind families to shop from them. Wish lists are only as successful as you make them. Suggestions:
- During the fundraising weekend, parents prefer to buy books they can look at so include books that are popular or currently available.
- Parents won't know Wish Lists exist unless you tell them. Remind parents to check your wish list page on Mrs. Dalloway's website by emailing it to families and friends or better yet, include your list in your weekly newsletter. If you'd like to keep your Wish List up to date throughout the year, that's fine with us!
Librarians: During the School Benefit weekend, we offer Wish List shelves for you to prominently display books on your wish list. Space is limited so let us know NOW if you'd like a shelf.
For more information or to sign up your school please contact Anne Whaling: firstname.lastname@example.org.
