Sundog Books Donates Books to Local Teachers in Honor of Teacher Appreciation Month

May 2, 2022

Every Walton County Teacher Able to Receive One Free Children’s/Young Adult Book for Classroom Libraries

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Month, Sundog Books in Seaside, Florida, is donating a children’s or young adult book to every Walton County teacher to help stock classroom libraries. All Walton County teachers with a current teacher identification badge can visit Sundog Books from May 1 to June 30 to select a free children’s or young adult book of their choice to be used in their classroom libraries.

“As our community’s local independent bookstore, we know firsthand how important it is to have new, exciting literature available to students in the classroom,” said Linda White, co-owner of Sundog Books. “We are so fortunate to have such amazing educators in Walton County and we want to support their efforts by donating books directly to our local teachers to help offset the cost of classroom libraries which, more often than not, comes out of the teachers’ pockets.”

According to the National Education Association, public school educators spend an average of $459 on school supplies per year. Thirty percent of teachers spent $1,000 or more on school supplies.

“We hope our small contribution will make an impact, getting more books in the hands of students,” said Bob White, co-owner of Sundog Books. “It’s a small thank you to our local educators for showing up and giving their all to the next generation of readers.”

“Teachers are our heroes!” said Mrs. White. “We are so excited to give back to those who make such a positive impact in our local community.”

To redeem this offer, Walton County teachers just need to come by Sundog Books in Seaside from May 1 to June 30, 2022, with a current teacher badge. The teacher can choose any children’s or young adult book for their classroom libraries. Teachers are limited to one book per school badge, and this donation is not redeemable for cash value. To avoid paying a parking fee, teachers are encouraged to use the complimentary shuttle provided by Seaside that runs from the 283 South Grayton Beach public parking lot to Seaside, Florida, every fifteen minutes.
