At Basically Books, we love Hawaii’s teachers, students, schools, and educational organizations! That’s why we do our part to support education and educators.

We offer a 10% discount to educators for classroom materials, whether accompanied by a Purchase Order or paid out-of-pocket!
Whether you are shopping on behalf of your organization or school, or on your own behest, just let us know when you are buying for the classroom.

Know what books you want? Give us a call or come in and we would be happy to special order anything we don’t carry. Although we specialize in Hawaiiana, we can locate and order books of all kinds. Got money to burn and only a vague idea of what you want? We love helping teachers find the books they need! Come in and browse our selection and talk to our knowledgeable staff about classics, new arrivals, and favorites. Need several of the same book? We have a history of helping schools and private organizations obtain multiple copies of books for the classroom, workshops, and seminars.
