Tip: Check with your employer to see if they have already set up a B&N Institutional Account or a B&N Educator Discount Card. No? During this event, educators from Pre-K through grade 12 can sign up for a free Educator Card and receive 25% off their personal and school purchases. Why? Our event falls within Educator Appreciation Week!

Did you know that B & N does book fairs? This may be especially helpful to area high schools.

Note: Some of you may already have B & N Educator Discount Cards and may receive a B & N  invitation to another similar event at 6 pm. Because B & N usually hosts its own separate “educator” event during  Educator Appreciation Week, the authors mentioned above for our book talk event will stay for slightly longer presentations at a B & N event from 6:00 – 7:00 pm which will include an audience beyond library personnel. This event will include the same book talks covered in our earlier event.
