The Books for Teachers program has been a part of the Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i (FLH) Annual Booksale for more than ten years through ongoing grants from The Renee B. Fisher Foundation.
We are excited to continue this program for itʻs second year apart from the sale on October 1 – 17, 2021.
300 public school teachers from Title 1 schools across O’ahu will be invited to the FLH bookstore – Village Books & Music at Ward – to choose books for their classrooms and students. Teachers may give the books to their students to build home libraries rather than lending them out during the pandemic.
The bookstore stocks books in 70 categories and any book or media may be purchased with the voucher. The bookstore is 10,000 SF and has a 75 person capacity due to the pandemic restrictions. Masks and temperature checks are required and hand sanitizer is provided.
Due to limited funding, the first five teachers from each school will be confirmed on a first come, first served basis. Additional teachers from each school will be placed on a waitlist. There are enough funds and book inventory to support 300 classrooms. Sixty (60) schools were chosen to participate based off of their Title I percentage of students in need. Please see the list below.
Teachers should bring reusable bags for their books and are welcome to bring their own gloves. Eligible teachers can register here.*
