Teacher Discount Program

The Odyssey Bookshop offers a 20% discount to (pre-k - 12) teachers, homeschoolers, and librarians on books and non-book items intended for classroom use. We believe that education is key to the healthy development of our young people and our democracy and this is just one way that we support the efforts and hard work of educators.
 
To participate in this program, you must be a PreK-12 teacher, librarian, or homeschool provider. To sign up, stop in at the Odyssey. 
 
Signing up is easy; show one of our booksellers a school id, a recent pay stub or active union card and they will enter you into our database. Each time you visit, just give us your last name before the transaction begins and the discount will be applied automatically! Homeschoolers can bring in a copy of the letter of intent that they submit to the school district to qualify.
 
Please note: This discount applies to items intended for classroom use only. Teachers must be present to receive the discount. Discount is not available to friends and family members. The discount cannot be combined with other promotions and does not extend to gift cards or certificates, newspapers, and short discount books.
 

 

Discount for Schools

Schools ordering books to be purchased with school funds will also receive a 20% discount, provided the order is received by the Odyssey three weeks in advance of when the books are needed. (Orders received with less lead time may receive a smaller discount.) Purchase orders MUST be e-mailed. Please send them to kids@odysseybks.com.
 
Books can be purchased tax-free with your school’s tax-exempt number.

  • Our friendly staff can make recommendations and inform you about books that are common core approved. 
  • We honor tax exemption.
  • We accept school purchase orders as well as checks, cash and credit cards.
