Bear Pond Books is expanding services for teachers, librarians, and other educators. Below is an overview of what we currently offer. Have other ideas? Tell Jane in the Children’s Room or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Discounts on Books for the Classroom
Educators receive 20% off books ordered for the classroom when placing an order of 10 or more books.
Author-Educator Talks and Resources
Throughout the school year, we invite authors in for Saturday morning conversations with educators. Past topics have included learning language through picture books, researching family and place, historical fiction, and teaching creative nonfiction.
Talks take place at 11:00 am in the children’s room, with coffee and snacks, and are free and open to the public. We provide certificates of attendance and a description of the event for participants who are able to use it towards continuing education credits.
We archive articles and resources from each talk on our Resources for Educators site.
Book Wish Lists
Do you have a list of books you would like to have donated to your classroom, library or organization? You can use our Wish List to let donors know what you need and also offer easy online ordering. More information is available in our Wish Lists section.

Help Finding and Ordering Books
Our staff is available to help track down difficult to find books, build book lists for particular ages or topics, update old book lists, place a special order, and make sure you have the books you need.
