DogEared Books


“Being an educator you see the effects of children not being read to at home,” Lashbrook said. “We want to make the store kid friendly but have a little something for everyone.”

Teachers are also encouraged to provide emails, and store staff will provide information about current children’s books/young adult book promotions.  Teachers are encouraged to print out the flyer and send it home to encourage reading outside the classroom.  Lashbrook says on her website that any teacher that provides his/her school email address and their grade level will receive a $5 gift certificate.

Lashbrook also wants to use the store as a focal point for teachers to air grievances and work together on ideas to make the educational process better for all involved. She has set up a specific e-mail: or by clicking on the Contact button at the top of the website.

Lashbrook works with Melodie Goren and Kim Campbell at the store, the latter two running things during the school day with Lashbrook taking over on Saturdays, For further information on DogEared Books, which is open tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., visit or call 817-598-1800.
