School Orders

In keeping with our mission to build a community of readers, the Vermont Book Shop offers discounts and delivery to all Addison County schools and nonprofit organizations. As processing large orders is time consuming and requires the focused attention of a bookseller, we ask that you please adhere to the policies set forth below. Your consideration contributes to the sustainability of our community-focused service.

Please read the following closely.

  • Orders must be submitted via email to
    • We strongly prefer you use our Google Sheets School Order template.

      • When you are done, hit the green SHARE button and enter our email address:
      • We will then have a shareable document which can be used to communicate with you about availability and track the status of the order. 
    • You may also use Excel to build your order spreadsheet or put the order details in an email, but you must supply the following: 
      • Title
      • Author
      • 13 digit ISBN (no dashes or spaces, please)
      • List Price (list prices are available widely online, including here on our website)
      • Quantity
    • The baseline discount for all area schools and nonprofit organizations is 20%.
      • We do NOT offer quotes unless the order is for more than 25 copies of a single title. In that case, please contact Becky directly for pricing. 
      • The Google Sheets School Order template will calculate discounted prices and the order total. You can use this to submit a requisition order if necessary. 
    • School & nonprofit orders will be billed with Net 30 terms.
      • Once processed by us, orders are considered a sale. Our system will email a receipt with account payment to your school administrative assistant or accounts payable clerk.
      • Should anything we order become unavailable, a credit will be issued.
      • When the order is complete, we will send a statement reflecting the amount due to your admin and will expect payment within 30 days. 
      • School personnel are responsible for submitting their requests for payment to their district central office in a timely manner.
