Teachers & Schools

Teacher Discount Cards: In addition to our usual Readers' Club Card bonus, we offer elementary & high school teachers a 10% discount on all purchases of books and materials for the classroom, professional development or personal use.

Annual Teacher & Librarian Appreciation Night: Each year we host a gathering of elementary and middle school teachers, librarians, principals and home-schoolers. A selection of the best new releases will be presented along with refreshments, door prizes and free classroom materials from our publishers. To get on our Teachers Appreciaton list, e-mail us.

Books for Schools Program:

You can earn free books for your favorite school with every purchase at Changing Hands! To show how much we appreciate local schools, we've extended our seasonal Changing Hands Books for Schools offer to a year-round program. The bookstore will credit participating schools with 15% of purchases made by parents, grandparents, teachers, and supporters. There's no limit to how much your children can benefit!
How Do Schools Sign Up?
We need one contact for each school. If you would like to be that contact, call us at 480.730.1142 or e-mail rachel.t@changinghands.com with your contact information (including your name, your school's name, address, telephone number and fax number, and your work email address).
How Can a School Promote Its Participation?
It's easy to promote your school's participation! After sign-up, we'll send you a digital Books for Schools information kit. The kit will include a master flyer for distribution to parents, plus a newsletter write-up and morning announcement copy describing the program.
How Does the Receipt Redemption Process Work?
Once your school is signed up, the rest is easy! During each transaction at the registers, simply say "Instead of receiving other discounts, I'd like to donate to my school through Books for Schools!" We'll record the information in our computers, and once a month, we'll leave a gift certificate for your school contact to pick up in the "will-call" file at our front information counter! We'll also remind you that it's ready via e-mail. BFS gift certificates can be used to purchase books for the classroom or library, but cannot be combined with any other special offers or discounts.
