At Dragonfly Books, we are blessed to have the support of our local community. We are proud of the strength of our schools and we are committed to providing support to our local and regional schools and educators. Whether you live in our region, or are visiting, we offer the following opportunities.
We realize educators often purchase classroom items using their own funds. To offset the cost, we offer an everyday discount of 20% off all books going into the classroom. No registration is necessary; simply identify yourself as an educator at the time of purchase.
Classroom Wish Lists
As an educator, you are able to create an ongoing wish list of books for your classroom(s). During the year, our customers can select books from these wish lists, purchase them at the regular educator discount of 20% off retail cost, and donate them to the classroom. Wish lists can be maintained online for ease in adding new titles to the list. Providing wish lists is one way we can extend beyond what we can do as a local bookstore and involve the larger community in support of our schools. Click on the "Classroom Wish List Program" link below for more information.
Dragonfly Books accepts school purchase orders. We also offer discounts for larger orders. Please contact our Education Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Reading and Literacy Program Support
We have worked with schools in providing books for their "One School, One Book" reading program. We also provide discounts to families for the annual Decorah "Reading Games" program. (see: http://dragonflybooks.com/reading-games-division-i). Please contact us with ideas or questions about support for additional reading/literacy programs.
Through a business relationship with Kobo, we are able to sell the same digital ebooks that are available through other ebook vendors at competitive prices. Kobo ebooks can be loaded onto almost every device (Kobos, Kindle Fire, Nook tablet, iPhone, iPad). Purchasing your ebooks through our relationship with Kobo allows the profit on the sale to stay local, as opposed to the profit going to the large corporations.
