Special Discounts on Used Textbooks

In today's economy most teachers and schools have limited budgets for purchasing curriculum. We offer special discounts on curriculum for teachers and schools in the form of reduced shipping fees as well as price reductions when textbooks are ordered in multiples. We will work with you to help you stay within your budget and still acquire the curriculum you need. With over 25 years of experience, we know textbooks and we can make recommendations on possible substitutions of cheaper titles.

Private Schools and Charter Schools Curriculum

Curriculum Development
Our experience with Private Schools and Charter Schools has shown us that they often have a small student enrollment and a limited budget for purchasing curriculum. This is not a problem. In fact it can work to your advantage by allowing us to develop a personal working relationship with your Teachers and Administrators. Smaller schools are usually very flexible when it comes to choosing curriculum for their schools, so we make recommendations based on your budget.

In other words, call us with an approximate budget, subjects needed, and number of students per grade. We will then choose textbooks based on that criteria. Of course, you will need to approve the titles we have chosen and make adjustments if necessary, because our motto is "Get it right the first time!" Feel free to call us toll free 888 268 5087.  We look forward to serving you!

"I have used a lot of book dealers and the best book dealer that I have found is without a doubt, The Backpack. They have excellent customer service. When I have needed a book that they didnít have in
stock, they spent time
looking for the book from other sources and promptly called me when they found it. Their prices are reasonable. Shipping time is good.
If there is a problem with
an order, The Backpack resolves it.  I highly recommend them!"

"Doing business with David and Joan at The Back Pack has been an absolute pleasure.  We opened a
new charter school in the summer of 2014, and they worked within our budget
to help us select high-quality books at a great price. 
We opened smoothly and have all the textbooks, leveled readers and classroom resources we
need, and are forever
grateful to David and Joan for sharing their expertise with us. For great books at
a great price, The Back
Pack can't be beat!"
