Note: Today’s announcement from Follett (below) follows news from last week that the company is also partnering with Random House for children’s ebooks.
Follett today announced a partnership with U.S. trade publisher Hachette Book Group (HBG) to provide preK-12 school libraries and students expanded access to popular children’s titles in an ebook lending format for the 2013-2014 school year.
Ebook offerings published under HBG’s Little, Brown Books for Young Readers imprint include noteworthy books such as the Ninth Ward (Coretta Scott King Author Honor Book Award) and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian (National Book Award Winner). “Our goal is to have authors’ work available to schools and students as technologies and reading habits evolve, and this partnership with Follett helps us in this effort,” said Evan Schnittman, HBG’s EVP, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer.
