BWI, a Follett Corporation company that provides children’s and YA books and audiovisual materials to public libraries, sold a portion of its assets to Baker & Taylor. The transaction was part of a strategic decision by the Follett School & Library Group to concentrate on the PreK-12 market.

“We felt it was imperative to find a distributor that would continue to provide outstanding service levels to our BWI customers,” said Todd Litzsinger, president of Follett Library Resources. “Baker & Taylor is the right partner and the best choice to continue BWI’s legacy.” As part of the transition BWI and B&T have formed a joint project team.
