School & Bulk Orders

The Literary loves helping schools, businesses, and organizations with bulk orders!


We can work with you to provide one, one hundred, or one thousand books, managing the experience for you from start to finish.

Did someone say "books"?

Great, that's our favorite word! If you're a school or business with a list of titles, send them to us and we'll get you an estimate and begin your order. 

Looking for recommendations? We can help with that, too! Our staff can assist with curating ideas and finding the right books for your needs, whether that's staff development, classroom favorites, or book clubs.

If you're a business that would like to start a book club but don't know where to start, we'd be happy to work with you to curate a list of titles that can be shipped or delivered to your business or to each participant's own address.


Discounts & Tax Exemption

Educators and schools get a 10% discount and we can accommodate any tax-exempt purchases. 

We can usually find you a better price than some certain online companies (that may or may not rhyme with "Shamazon"), plus your money stays local!


Special Delivery!

"You're saying that we just send you our list and you do the rest?" Yep, basically! 

Once your order has arrived and has been received at the store, we'll deliver it to you for free (within the Champaign-Urbana area), or we can ship it to wherever you are.

Because we're a small local business, we do not accept returns on orders of $200 or more and orders must be prepaid.


Let's do this!

We can't wait to work with you! Email your questions about bulk ordering or send us your list at
