Teacher of the Month

Always Buying Books has a new community outreach program called Teacher of the Month! Every month, we will select a teacher and donate $50 worth of books for their classroom. Friends and family can “adopt a teacher” by donating additional funds towards the classroom. So far, 3 teachers have received over $500 for books in their classrooms.

October Teacher of the Month

Teacher Of The Month Erin Wilson

Our Teacher of the Month for October is Erin Wilson, high school English teacher at Webb City High School.

ALWAYS BUYING BOOKS is donating $50 for books for her classroom, and anyone can donate $5 or more (either in person or call with your credit card). If Erin has taught your children or grandchildren, here’s a way to say “Thanks Teacher!”

Ms. Wilson will be shopping for her books on October 23rd.

Books Behind Bars

For the last 5 years, Always Buying Books has donated books to city and county jails, as well as state and federal prisons.

These books come at no cost to the inmates.

We have also helped another bookstore in Illinois begin a very similar program in their state.
