Teacher Discounts

Teachers get more than just an apple at Capitol Hill Books.

The staff at Capitol Hill Books are all avid readers. And many of us have great teachers to thank for inspiring our love of reading. I remember my third-grade teacher who purchased Goosebump books for me to read and I gobbled them up like delicious candy. Then she told me about some other good books by authors like Madeline L’Engle and C.S. Lewis and Norton Juster. I became a lifelong reader through her influence.

So we at Capitol Hill Books like to thank teachers by offering them a 10 percent discount on used books for their classrooms. Just let us know you are a teacher and show us your school ID for the discount. Our books are already quite affordable (Many of our children’s chapter books are only around $3 to $4.), but we like to extend an additional discount to encourage teachers that inspire their students to engage in a lifelong appreciation for books. Thanks Mrs. Shelton, wherever you are.

Look stylish and thrifty with your own Capitol Hill Books' bag

Just a few weeks ago we introduced a new product at Capitol Hill Books, a book bag made from recycled plastic that is perfect for almost any errand.

Now there is another incentive to buy these awesome bags: They’ll save you money! Starting now, anybody who purchases books in the store with our red book bags will get an automatic 10 percent discount good on any used books in the store.

Before we get too generous, we should say that our customers can only use one discount at a time, so those with frequent shopper cards cannot combine discounts. And of course the discount is only good for those who purchase books instead of use trade credit, but other than that, there are no more catches or caveats. Buy one of our red book bags for $3.95 and get 10 percent off your used book purchases every time you bring it to Capitol Hill Books. It’s our way of rewarding customers for reducing their use of plastic bags and helping spread the word of Capitol Hill Books across the land.
