"Kid's Storytime" For Preschoolers
Have a preschooler? Then you'll probably be happy to hear about our "Kid's Storytime" program! Each Wednesday at 10am we have "Kid's Storytime" for preschoolers - and it's free! Come out and join the fun each week (an adult must be present with the children who attend).
Give Your Trade Credit To A Teacher!
Several of our generous customers have combined their unused trade credit to establish a "Teacher's Trade Credit Account." Their purpose is to help teachers who are buying books for their classrooms at their own expense and who may not have any credit of their own to use. It's a type of "pay it forward" or "random act of kindness" that honors the many teachers that are members of our Gently Used Books community. Our new "Teacher's Trade Credit Account" is available for everyone to make contributions to whenever they wish - so let us know if you have excess trade credit and wish to transfer it to our new "Teacher's Trade Credit Account" for a teacher to use.
If you are a teacher who is purchasing books for your classroom at your own expense, just let us know at the time of purchase so we can check to see if there are any funds in the Teacher's Trade Credit Account that can be credited towards your purchase.
