Business & School Orders

Folio Books is happy to order books for your employees, party guests, event attendees, nonprofit organization, school giveaways, or any other event or reason for which you are giving away books! We offer discounts ranging from 15-35% off the cover price of the book, depending on its availability and how many copies you are ordering. We also offer shipping options nationwide.


To place an order, fill out the form below or email us at and include information about your desired book title(s), including quantity, author, whether the book is hardcover or paperback, and ideally the ISBN(s), as well as the need-by date. We will then send you a quote. If you don't have a particular title in mind, please provide some information about you or your organization and the context in which you are giving away books, and we will be happy to send you a list of suggestions.

In addition to bulk orders, we also are open to invitations to serve as your bookseller and organizer for special events such as book fairs, readings, and more. Please contact to set up a consultation to discuss your event needs.


Folio Books has helped our school for years with purchasing bulk orders for events like our annual book fair and our holiday book exchange.  We appreciate Folio’s personalized service, excellent communication, and attention to detail. Our orders are often complicated, but we know we can trust the staff to work with us to get everything right. Folio Books is a great partner in every way!

I must tell you how easy, convenient, and fast it is to order books with Folio Books here in our wonderful Noe Valley neighborhood. I order both single books for myself and bulk orders for our real estate business. We like to send clients books from time to time as a show of our appreciation. Folio makes it super easy to order in bulk. They'll even help suggest some great titles to choose from! They handle the order and the shipping directly to each of my client's homes. Thank you, Folio!

Folio Books is a longtime supporter of our mission to give free books to children who need them. This wonderful local indie bookstore hosts our donation book bag and our curated wishlist, and their knowledgeable staff help us place bulk orders of the most in-demand titles. We appreciate their willingness to help us find books that give us the most return on our nonprofit budget.

We partnered with Folio Books this year to run our school Book Fair. From start to finish they were professional, and knowledgeable and ensured that our fair was accessible to all including our students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and our monolingual Spanish-speaking families. Their staff went above and beyond to research titles, provide suggestions, keep us up to date on order statuses and provide friendly customer service to our staff and families. We look forward to a continued partnership!
