Educators at Greenlight

Greenlight Bookstore is available to partner with schools of all grades in nearby Brooklyn neighborhoods and with other New York City schools on a case-by-case basis.  If you’d like to get more information about any of these programs, please use the contact information below.


Wish lists: 

We can direct you to easily set up a wish list on our website, so your school community can purchase books your school needs OR books you suggest for summer reading or other occasions. (These wish list orders are subject to regular web order processing in terms of pickup or shipping.)

Library or Classroom Book Drive
For schools working on stocking their library or classrooms with books, Greenlight can create a page on the bookstore’s e-commerce website featuring the school’s desired books. We can work with schools to publicize the school’s book drive to parents and other supporters, who can purchase books online during the drive period; purchased books are then delivered to the school free of charge.

Summer Reading / Required Reading Lists 
Schools or individual teachers can contact Greenlight to register their summer reading lists or other required reading lists, and Greenlight can make sure to have books on the list available.  We can also post the lists on our website. Students get a 10% discount at Greenlight, so parents can affordably fill their kids’ reading lists in one stop (or buy online) while supporting a local bookstore.

We can designate a time frame (usually a week or a weekend) when anyone who mentions your school while shopping in the store will have 10% of their purchase donated back to the school. It's a great motivation for families to explore all we have to offer in the kids book section and beyond, and a low-maintenance fundraiser on your end and on our end. We can provide digital flyers to help publicize to your school community -- this kind of project is usually as successful as the school's communication efforts!

Bulk Sale Discounts
Greenlight offers bulk discounts to educators and schools purchasing quantities of books for classrooms, libraries, or student giveaways. Discounts vary by order quantity and publisher policies; use the contact below to request a quote.

Educator Discounts
Greenlight Bookstore offers 10% off to all teachers and educators, every day.  You don’t need a special card to get your discount; just present your school ID or other proof of educator status when you check out. And you can get the same 10% discount when ordering online at  Just mention your title and school affiliation in the “order comments” field, and your discount will be applied before your credit card charge is finalized. 

Youth book groups: Greenlight hosts in-store book groups for ages 9-12 and ages 13+.  We'd love to provide some material for you to spread the word about these free opportunities to read and talk with peers and booksellers about great contemporary literature. (And the featured books are always 10% off with student ID!)

Children's Story Times & Partnerships: 

Greenlight hosts Story Times for the youngest booklovers (up to age 8) every Saturday. We'd be happy to provide materials for you to spread the word about these events (and they can make great tie-ins for in-store fundraiser periods!).
