Woot! Hey, Olympia, it’s Scholastic Books Warehouse Sale time.
There is also one in Auburn coming up soon!
These sales are a great opportunity to stock up on Scholastic titles at a fraction of the regular price (Just in time for summer reading!)
Now, note that these sales are officially only for school district employees, book fair volunteers, and homeschool directors, but I’ve been going to them for Years-first as a teacher, and then as a book fair volunteer and no one has ever, even once, asked to see my pass.
If you’re concerned about it, you could register as a home schooler or grab a teacher pal to shop with, but I will really be surprised if it’s an issue. You could also make a point of helping at your next book fair. I know the gal who runs ours is always desperate for volunteers!
Here’s the link to the scoop on the sale with hours and a sign-up option. There are also some coupons if you’re planning on really stocking up, or you’d like to help build a classroom library. I know many of you have shopped these events before, so feel free to leave a comment with your best tips!
