Mark your calendars, bargain book lovers! A Scholastic Books Warehouse sale event is coming up in Auburn! These sales are a great way to stock a classroom or homeschool library, and this one is just in time for summer reading!
I’ll be honest-I’ve gotten boxes of bargain books at these some years, and walked away empty handed others. You just don’t know if there will be hits until you check it out! That part is always fun!
Now, these used to say they were just for teachers and book fair volunteers, but the wording now includes school volunteers and homeschool teachers. I’m pretty sure you fall under one of those categories! It’s very unlikely anyone will ask you, in any case. I’ve been several times, and I’ve never had anyone ask for any kind of id or information. They also advertise it to the public-in fact, the event is very much in a warehouse section, and looking for the sandwich board they put out is your best bet! The dates and times are below. Note that the only South Sound area event is in Auburn. They used to host one in Lacey/Olympia, but there hasn’t been one a that location in a while.
