We are very proud of our links with local schools and are pleased to support all kinds of school-based activity, from PTA raffles and fundraisers, library advice to help keep up with the best new reading, Carnegie Shadowing, reluctant reader events, school fairs and bringing authors into schools.
We get asked often about our various services, so are pleased to detail here the main things we help out with. But we are very pleased to be approached with suggestions and ideas, whether from parents or teachers. We know it is a privilege to work with local schools and we are grateful for all the support we receive that goes to support this local business.
Book fairs with the widest range of authors, publishers and brand new titles
One of our most popular services are our bookfairs. We are not tied into any publisher or scheme, so simply offer a selection of the very best and the very latest titles.
Throughout the year we read lots and meet with our publishers and suppliers to choose and stock the very best in children's reading, from publishers large and small, debut authors and of course the big names.
If you choose to do a Mostly Books book fair, you get a selection of our very favourite titles. It works well as a fundraiser too as a percentage of total sales is donated to your school or can go towards your library budget.
We can offer a bespoke service - whether you want us to leave books with you, or want us to come and run a book fair over a lunchtime, or after school, we are very flexible and happy to discuss what would suit you best.
Competitive book supply for orders small or large, delivered free
Whether it is text books, library books, books for classrooms, pupils or prizes, we are very happy to source books. We offer the best discounts we can and can usually deliver free.
A comprehensive 'New Book' advice service for specific age ranges -
or for a whole library refresh
Whether you have a full-time librarian, or run your library with a team of volunteers, it can be difficult to keep up with all the latest and the best in children's reading as it is a fast-moving area. We are always very happy to advise.
Full sale-or-return title supply for author events
If an author is visiting your school, we are happy to provide books for you to sell on the day on a full sale-or-return basis.
Next-day ordering through our TXT-A-BOOK service, or via social media
If you suddenly remember a book that you need urgently, let us know before 4pm and we can usually have it in stock the next morning.
We have great relationships with many publishers and they let us know of many authors available for school visits when publicising a new book. So we are very happy to match up available authors with schools wanting author visits.
We know from experience how very much children get out of meeting authors and we work closely between author, publisher and school to make the most of these very special occasions.
If you would like an author visit do get in touch.
We would be delighted to discuss your requirements further, and we would be very happy to send you more details of the above services. Simply email Mark at Mostly Books and he will respond quickly to any requirements you have - or ideas you would like to discuss.
