Resources for Schools and Non-profits

Tons (literally) of FREE books following warehouse sales
At the conclusion of each warehouse sale, educators and nonprofits are invited to select from the leftover books.
Bring a pickup or plan to fill your trunk and back seats, as we usually have more than 5,000 books left for donation.

Class Sets for Less
Grassroots Books orders brand new books for teachers at a discount, usually around 35% off list price. Email [email protected] for all your classroom needs!

Free Book Cards for Everyone
Every month, Grassroots Books passes out thousands of Free Book Cards for our Outside Sale. You are invited to pick up as many as you’re able to hand out. Limit one per person/per calendar year.  No purchase necessary to select a wallet-friendly priced, unstickered book from any genre.

Books make a difference! Studies show that adding books to the home of an underprivileged child can add more than a year to their education.  In other words, it could be the difference between a student dropping out in the 11th grade and graduating high school.
