The leading school digital reading platform for classroom, library & home
Your central digital content solution
Top content from highest-quality publishers
We offer more than 2 million titles from 5,000 publishers to support curriculum and instruction goals. Our experienced team of educational content experts works hand-in-hand with districts and schools to select the exact combination of digital content tailored to their unique priorities and resources.

Cost effective, district/school model
We work directly with publishers you know and trust to offer districts and schools the best prices on content, and you only pay for the titles you want. Most digital titles never need to be replaced, and having an organization-wide content access platform reduces the number of copies that have to be purchased. Contact us for a free needs analysis.
Ease of use and device compatibility
We put your digital content collection on one easy-to-use website that’s available to students and educators 24/7/365. Our content is compatible with all major devices – including popular tablets, Kindle® (U.S. only) and Chromebooks – and can be used online or offline.
Expert Support For Deep Integration & Implementation
We’re your partner every step of the way in making a successful transition to digital:
