Thanks for thinking of Third Place Books for your ordering needs! We are happy to work with educators to process bulk purchases of books for use in the classroom, school library, or for professional development. Whether you are ordering an extensive list of books or a large quantity of a single title, we can provide a quote that includes our 20% educator discount.*
Additionally, if you need them, our expert kids booksellers can help to recommend the best titles for your particular needs. We are always excited to suggest books for teachers to use with their students!
Please email Sarah Breaux, the Children's Outreach Manager and point person for teacher orders, with your list of books, including the exact titles, authors, and ISBNs. We will check stock availability and get back in touch with a quote. Unless you note otherwise, we will order all books into our Lake Forest Park location. In rare circumstances, we can ship or deliver teacher bulk orders.
If you want to pay for any purchases you make at our Third Place Books locations with school-approved purchase orders, please have a copy of the PO when you check out at our cashier. Please note that we cannot keep track of the balances on open POs; that is the responsibility of the teacher.
*Please note: In rare cases, depending on the book's availability, we may not be able to offer the full 20% discount on all items. For some high volume purchases (100+) of a single title, however, we may be able to offer a discount greater than 20%.
If you'd like to use a school-approved purchase order to shop at our Third Place Books locations, you have three options:
