School Partnerships at Greenlight

We deeply value the work of our local schools, and here are some ways we can partner to provide books to your students and communities:

  • In-store fundraiser: we can designate a time frame (usually a week or a weekend) when anyone who mentions your school while shopping in the store will have 10% of their purchase donated back to the school. It's a great motivation for families to explore all we have to offer in the kids book section and beyond, and a low-maintenance fundraiser on your end and on our end. We can provide digital flyers to help publicize to your school community -- this kind of project is usually as successful as the school's communication efforts!
  • Wish lists: we can direct you to easily set up a wish list on our website, so your school community can purchase books your school needs OR books you suggest for summer reading or other occasions. (These wish list orders are subject to regular web order processing in terms of pickup or shipping.)
  • Student and teacher discounts: anyone who presents a student or teacher ID when shopping at the bookstore can get 10% off their purchase.
  • Youth book groups: Greenlight hosts in-store book groups for ages 9-12 and ages 13+.  We'd love to provide some material for you to spread the word about these free opportunities to read and talk with peers and booksellers about great contemporary literature. (And the featured books are always 10% off with student ID!)
  • Children's Story Times & Partnerships: Greenlight hosts Story Times for the youngest booklovers (up to age 8) every Saturday. We'd be happy to provide materials for you to spread the word about these events (and they can make great tie-ins for in-store fundraiser periods!).
  • Bulk Orders: Greenlight can often offer significant discounts on orders of 25 or more copies of the same book to organizations or schools seeking to give books to employees or students. Bulk discount options vary on a case-by-case basis, and we’d love to work with you to get the best rate as well as handling, shipping, and other details.
