For Educators

Dragonfly Books loves our local educators!

At Dragonfly Books, we are thankful 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.


Everyday Discounts
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 when purchasing items for your classroom.

(Educator discount does not apply to personal purchases by educators)


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.
