Working with Schools
Since we opened we have been working hard to establish good links with Nurseries, Primary Schools and Secondary Schools across Dundee and Angus.
This has included providing a book stall at Christmas fayres, book reading sessions for nursery kids at the Bookhouse, author events and short story competitions.
In 2019 for example we organised visits by Holly Jackson ("A Good Girl's Guide to Murder") to Forfar Academy and Morgan Academy where she talked about her book with over 200 pupils and signed copies on the day.
More recently we had a visit from Liff Primary School in May 2022 where a number of pupils came into our shop accompanied by their teacher to buy a great many books to replenish their School Library. We also gave them away many additional posters and bookmarks to decorate their library with.
Please get in touch if you are a teacher or a parent and would like to have a discussion about how we can work with your school.
