Midtown Reader in Schools


Midtown Reader loves working with our local schools, educators, teachers, and PTAs! Below are a few ways we love to connect with schools and bring great books to students in our area.  We are always open to suggestions, so please reach out to us anytime you want to bounce around a new or creative idea!

  • Author/Illustrator School Visits: Midtown Reader can help bring authors and illustrators to your school!  We have lists of available authors in our area and also work with publishers to bring authors to schools for free in exchange for books sales to students, teachers, and your school.  We can also facilitate pre-orders and same-day sales for author events your school or PTA has arranged on its own. Learn more here.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

  • School Orders: Midtown Reader can order books for your classrooms and media center.  Just send us a list of books you need, and we’ll send you a price quote for a PO, or let us know and we’ll work with you to develop a list of hot titles to fit your needs.  We offer competitive discounts to schools and provide free delivery.                                                                                                                                                    

  • Book Fairs:  During the COVID-19 Pandemic Midtown Reader developed a hybrid in-store/online book fair option to provide books and fundraising support for our area schools. Details about the book fair option can be found here.
