Scholastic believes strongly in the important role school and public libraries play in our communities. We often say that they level the playing field - providing equal access to books and technology, as well as opportunities for learning. For students, they open the door to learning outside the classroom and beyond the school day.
In the rapidly-changing world of the 21st Century, libraries are transforming into learning centers that go far beyond books. They're harnessing the power of digital tools to offer new ways of exploring the world. And Scholastic is meeting them where they are, providing the content they need in multiple formats to help serve students and patrons.
Through our division Scholastic Library Publishing, we offer curriculum-aligned and high-interest nonfiction from the Children’s Press® and Franklin Watts® imprints, and publish series that librarians know and trust: A Rookie Reader®, Rookie-Read About®, True Books, Cornerstones of Freedom and Enchantment of the World. SLP continues to offer libraries fiction from the various Scholastic imprints and Weston Woods® video storybooks as well. Our flagship product, the all-new Grolier Online™, continues to provide a wealth of nonfiction content and resources that go beyond the encyclopedia and help improve research skills and learning. Through new digital resources like TrueFlix® and BookFlix®, Scholastic Library Publishing is creating new ways to bring nonfiction content to life and giving families access to literacy-building tools that kids love.
