TPS Student-Run Pre-Owned Book Store & Cafe: Next Chapter Books

Next Chapter Books

In the summer of 2021, when the Trumbull Public Schools needed a new hub for the district's ELITE (Educating Learners in Transitional Environments) program, which provides community-based life and employability skills training for students with developmental disabilities, those involved looked to create a student-run business which would make a meaningful contribution to the community. With the TPS core values of inclusivity and the development of a lifelong love of literacy in mind, a bookstore cafe and "meet up" spot seemed like just the right fit.

Through community collaborations, the Trumbull team learned how to create a self-funded program in the form of a pre-owned bookstore and cafe - and the idea for Next Chapter Books was born.
