"Books serve to show a man that those original thoughts of his aren't very new after all."

~~~ Abraham Lincoln ~~~

"The smallest bookstore still contains more ideas of worth than have been presented in the entire history of television."

Read To Succeed Program

Students Bring In Your Gently Used Books For A Two-For-One Trade At Dreamalot Books, And Receive A $5.00 Gift Certificate For Your Teacher!

The Read To Succeed Program is designed to encourage our kids to read as well as help provide teachers with much needed books for their classrooms. No money is required to participate in the program. Simply have your students bring in books they've already read or outgrown to Dreamalot Books. Students will be given a two-for-one store credit towards other used books. In addition to getting books they haven't already read, the student will also receive a five-dollar gift certificate to Dreamalot Books for their teacher. This may not sound like a lot, but keep in mind the majority of children and teen books at Dreamalot Books sell for fifty cents or less. A five dollar gift certificate could get you up to ten chapter books or as many as fifteen younger childrens' books. The gift certificates have no expiration date and may be used at any time for any purchase made at Dreamalot Books. Please note no change will be given and no other discounts apply when using a gift certificate. Dreamalot Books would also like to remind all teachers that teachers normally get a 10% discount on any cash purchase. Budget cutbacks have hurt everyone lately. The Read To Succeed Program is one small way that the entire community can aid in providing our children with the resources needed to give them the education they deserve.
