Discounting & Services

Discounting

The Bookman provides a discount pricing schedule when wholesale prices allow.

  • Teachers: Classroom teachers can receive a discount on select purchases. Please ask for details when you check out. Teacher discount purchases are not eligible for Customer Club credit.
  • Schools & Non-profits: Books and other material purchased by schools and non-profit organizations receive a 20% discount. Greater discounts may be possible, and we will work on an individual basis with each situation. Please provide a Tax ID# at the time of your order if we do not have it on file.
  • Book Clubs: When an individual buys five or more copies of a single title for a bookclub, a 20% discount is available. The customer can receive this discount as either a 20% discount on the purchase, or as a 10% discount plus credit on the customer's Customer Club account.
  • Large Orders: Large orders receive a minimum 20% discount and are tax free for schools and other non-profit organizations. Depending on the purchase, we may be able to provide a higher discount. Please provide your Tax ID# at the time of your order. We also work with for-profit groups and businesses to provide competitive discounts on large orders.

Monthly Clubs & Groups

  • Bookman Book Club: Our book club meets the last Wednesday of every month at 7:00 pm. Call for details. Everyone is welcome!
  • Poetry Club: Poetry Live: Our poetry club meets the second Tuesday of every month from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. Come share your own work or read one of your favorite poems to the group.
