Follett Ties Up With Penguin Group, Launches 17,000 eBooks For PreK-12 Grade


Follett has launched 17,000 ebook titles for students in preK through 12th grades as a result of its new partnership with Penguin Group USA. This also marks the fifth major partnership that Follett has forged in the past six months, with others being Random House, Hachette, Simon & Schuster, and Macmillan. Follett specializes in the supply of quality educational material to schools, colleges, and public libraries, and this latest agreement will no doubt boost its appeal in the segment.

“This partnership allows Follett to continue its mission of supporting student learning by providing access to the best content and materials, whether print or digital,” said Tom Schenck, President and COO, Follett School Solutions. “Penguin’s publishing lists include hundreds of the world’s most widely read authors, which is why we are pleased to be able to offer this collection to our customers.”

Tim McCall, Vice President of Online Sales and Marketing at Penguin, said, “Penguin is looking forward to making our catalog of ebooks available to Follett and to its school library customers.”
