Helping School Administrators & Teachers Find the Best Books For Their Needs

Alison Weber, a former teacher, started ALRAN Books over twenty years ago to fill the need for personalized service in an ever changing world of books and how books are/were being marketed to schools.  You speak to the same person each time you call with a question or to place an order. We pride ourselves in our customer service and competitive pricing. Unlike textbook publishers, distributors such as ALRAN Books are not sales representatives of, nor do they receive any type of compensation from publishers. Distributors are self-employed individuals. ALRAN, not the publishers, offers titles at educational exhibits for you to preview.

Over 300 Educational Publishers!

We are proud to offer titles from over 300 publishers for Educators including but not limited to the following publishers: Corwin, Heinemann, Scholastic professional and trade books, Solution Tree,Hickory Press, Candlewick , DK, Random House, Shell, Harper-Collins, Simon and Shuster, Math Solutions, Dawn Publications, Evan-Moor, Free Spirit, Guilford, ASCD,Pearson, Discovery Writing Press, Boyds Mill Press, Peach Tree Press, Henry Holt, IRA, Tilbury House, Jossy Bass, Stenhouse, Annick, Carson-Dellosa, and more to all areas of the US.


At ALRAN Books we do everything we can to keep our prices low, however the publishers set our prices and may change prices without notice. If you request a price quote from us we will honor that price for 30 days regardless of publisher’s price changes. ALRAN Books will not be bound by pricing mistakes or inaccuracies. If the pricing of an item in an order is not correct we will make every effort to contact the customer to notify them of the error.
