Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE:BKS), one of the nation’s largest booksellers and the leading retailer of content, digital media and educational products, will celebrate fall Educator Appreciation Days, October 12-20. During a time when school funding has been seriously impacted by budget cuts, all Barnes & Noble stores and Barnes & Noble.com (www.bn.com) will offer special discounts, promotions and giveaways for preK-12 educators and administrators.
Special offers include:
As part of Educator Appreciation Days, all Barnes & Noble stores will host events focusing on a variety of educational topics, including “Appy Hour,” a presentation on the latest educational apps, a Common Core book presentation, a bookfair open house, a grant writing workshop, NOOK in Education demonstrations, homeschooler receptions, and more.**
“We know how hard educators work to teach our children. We also know they spend a lot of their own money to purchase books and materials for their classrooms,” said Sarah DiFrancesco, Director of Business Development, Barnes & Noble, Inc. “That’s why we’re always searching for special offers on top of the 25% discount we provide during Educator Appreciation Days. Thanks to a great partnership with Rosetta Stone, we’re thrilled to be able to offer educators a 25% discount on Rosetta Stone Level 1 Language Sets for the first time. These sets are ideal for educators who want to enhance their own foreign language skills or for use in classrooms and language labs.”
Educators who visit stores during Educator Appreciation Days will also receive information about Barnes & Noble’s 2014 My Favorite Teacher Contest, which provides middle and high school students the opportunity to tell their communities how much they appreciate their teachers by writing an essay, poem or letter about them. Local winning teachers are recognized at an in-store event in the spring and become eligible to win prizes at the regional level. One regional winner will be named the Barnes & Noble National Teacher of the Year and receive a cash prize of $5,000, with their school also receiving $5,000.
* Educators must present a valid Barnes & Noble Educator Discount Card to receive special discounts. Normal exclusions apply. Ask any bookseller for details.
** Workshop topics will vary by store.
