(March 17, 2010)--Borders bookstores will offer a 30-percent discount to educators and education staff members Friday, March 19 to Saturday, March 27. During Educator Appreciation Week the stores will honor the hard work of current and retired teachers. There will be educators' special receptions from 2 to 6 p.m., Saturday, March 20 at Borders stores nationwide.

UTSA faculty and staff and other educators will receive the 30-percent savings on personal and classroom purchases of books, CDs, DVDs, cafe items, gifts and stationery, and more by showing their current Borders classroom discount card, UTSACard, other educator ID, home-school certification or pay stub.

"Every day in the classroom, at home, in lecture halls and within libraries across the country, the commitment of the professional educator shines," said Suzanne Gonzalez, Borders representative. "Borders is a longtime proponent for literacy and learning and strives to recognize each teacher, home-schooler, professor, religious educator and librarian's efforts to share the love of books and knowledge with their students. Thank you for the great work you do!"
