Follett is expanding its pre-K to 12 digital offerings through a partnership with Random House. Under the arrangement, Follett’s school library e-book customers can purchase Random House titles like Rachel Hartman’s Seraphina and Christopher Paul Curtis’s The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963 and lend them to their students.
“We are excited about the 36,000-plus titles published by Random House, Inc., imprints, and the outside publishers we distribute that our new partnership with Follett will bring into the school library market,” said Skip Dye, v-p of library and academic marketing for Random House.
Follett e-books are read by 28 million students at more than 42,000 schools in the U.S. and abroad. All Follett e-books make use of the proprietary Follett Digital Reader, which provides a built-in dictionary and note-taking and bookmarking capabilities.
