For Our Educators
Old Firehouse Books strives to support the educators of Northern Colorado as best we can. Below are some services we are proud to provide to educators of all kinds.
Author School Visits
We know what a great experience it is for kids when published authors visit their school. It can be expensive to bring an author to town, which is why Old Firehouse Books is happy to work with educators to bring touring authors to their schools free of charge! Visits typcially consist of a presentation followed by a book signing. Old Firehouse Books provides a bookseller on site to handle sales in addition to creating a pre-order form to go home with the kids prior to the visit. Schools are asked to provide equipment need for the presentation, and that's it! If you would like to be contacted when an author is visiting Fort Collins, please send your name, school name, and job title to email@example.com.
School Book Orders
Old Firehouse Books is happy to order books for your school! Whether it is books for the classroom or the library, we will gladly order them in. In addition to being tax-exempt, orders can range from 20-30% depending on quantity ordered.
Our store also stocks the titles for the Poudre High School IB Program and offers them at a 20& discount.
Second Grade History Tours
The building we call home is a historic piece of Fort Collins. There are so many fun stories to tell about the place, and we love to share them (we all do love a good story after all)! If you would like to visit the old firehouse as part of your second grade history unit, we would be glad to show you around! Send and email to Renee at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a date and time to visit.
