Three Great Reasons to Partner with the
Blue Manatee Literacy Project for Book Orders

COST: Blue Manatee Literacy Project is price-competitive with any traditional source for books and resources in the industry. As an independent bookstore, our longstanding commercial relationships with all publishers, wholesalers and industry stakeholders means that we will aggressively price bulk or special orders and ensure that our clients optimize their resource budgets, with delivery timing that meets your schedule.

EXPERTISE: Partnering with BMLP means your resource needs are curated by our award-winning Literacy Content and Logistics Manager, Jill Burket Ragase. As a career youth literacy expert, Cincinnati/Hamilton County Library division leader and multi-year collection buyer for Blue Manatee, Jill builds your collection, curricular and organizational objectives into every order, acting as your literacy consultant and bridge to the world of publishing. Plus, she’s really fun!

INSTANT IMPACT: The most unique and rewarding aspect of ordering through Blue Manatee Literacy Project is our mission. Your school, library or organization’s order is immediately matched, 1 for 1, with donated new books delivered to disadvantaged schools in greater Cincinnati where at-risk students lack access to culturally, proficiency and age-appropriate books and the mentorship and experiences required to build confidence in reading. Your order unleashes this “multiplier effect” and connects communities in a shared mission to support all young readers!
