Vroman’s loves to help schools, educators, and libraries in the community promote a passion for reading. Whether you’re looking for an author to speak at your school, or you’re interested in heading to our store for a field trip, we’re here to help spread a love for books!
We offer educators 20% off all items purchased for the school or classroom when you set up a Vroman’s Educators Account.

Classroom/ Library Orders
We’d love to help you with your school orders. We offer competitive discounts, and we’ll handle everything. For questions, quotes, or fast and easy processing of large school or library orders, contact our Teacher Liaison at (626)449-5320 x 280 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
School Fundraising Weeks
Vroman’s offers fundraisers that earn your school 20% of every dollar spent on EVERYTHING (books, gifts, everything in the store!) purchased by your parents, students, and teachers. Fundraisers take place at Vroman’s on a day or week of your choosing.
Classes or student groups are welcome to join one of our wonderful employees on a tour around the store! Visit each department for a special behind-the-scenes tour, learn about the different jobs at Vroman’s, and see how a bookstore works. Call ahead to make arrangements.
If you’re interested in having an author visit your school, look no further! Vroman’s announces when authors are available for presentations and signings at schools in the Teacher’s Newsletter and special school event e-mail updates. (You can join our mailing lists at the top of this page.) We also have a list of local authors that are available to be requested, but are not guaranteed. Please call and ask for Jen Pino, for more information. When Vroman's provides authors to schools, we solicit book sales in lieu of honorariums. We provide the books to you along with the materials to handle the sales, flyers to send home to parents about the visit, and order forms for advance sales. School staff is responsible for selling the books and a portion of the proceeds may be donated to the school library or classrooms.
Summer Reading Lists
Submit your summer reading lists to Vroman’s and we will keep them on hand for students’ reference. Submitting your lists to Vroman’s will also help ensure there are enough copies of each book for your classes.
Field Trips & Kids’ Events
Some of our events for kids take place during the school day- a perfect opportunity for a field trip! Watch our calendar for events and just call ahead of time to let us know you’re coming!
We love talking about books and would be thrilled to attend one of your meetings (assemblies, teachers, PTA, etc.) to present recommendations of our favorite new children’s books, or books on parenting and education. We’ll bring coffee, cookies, and coupons!
Events for Class Credit
Need a great opportunity to offer extra credit to students? Check out our events calendar and send them to Vroman’s to attend an author signing and discussion!
Library Wishlists – Book Drives
Create a library wishlist to leave at Vroman’s during a designated period of time. People can purchase books off the list and leave them at the store to be donated to the library!
Teacher of the Year Award
Vroman’s honors an outstanding teacher each spring with an award and reception. There are prizes for the winner, the teacher’s school, and the student who submitted the nomination.
Teacher’s Night Out
Once a year we invite teachers to spend the evening at the store with us. Book talks, a DJ, refreshments, and coupons make it a party.
Questions? Call (626)449-5320 or contact email@example.com and we'll be glad to help!
