A Note from Our CEO & President, Deborah B. Sorgi, Ed.D.

Dear Friends,

This unprecedented time has been difficult at best – thank goodness we have each other. Please know how much we appreciate your patronage. Until things return to the new normal, we are here virtually to support you. Our team is working behind the scenes to answer your questions, process your orders, and repair your equipment. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Our sales professionals, customer support team, and product experts are available during normal business hours Monday through Friday.

Be sure to visit our website for extra resources you can use in-library or share with your patrons at home. We have created lesson plans and reproducible worksheets and provided you with links to free content you can share with your early learners and their families.

We look forward to the reopening of the American economy and to our libraries in particular! We have some wonderful promotions right now. Be sure to take advantage now and be ready for your patrons once you open your doors. Know that we miss you and all the wonderful support services you provide to the community. Thank you for all you do and your continued loyalty and support. Be safe; be well.

Kind regards,
Deborah B. Sorgi, Ed.D.

Tradeshow Update

We are disappointed that all of our Spring Tradeshows have been canceled. We certainly understand the situation and the need to cancel, but we will miss seeing you at your local Library Conference, or the ALA Conference. We love being able to see our customers and participate in these annual events.

Our prize wheel may be on hold for this year, but it will return at next year’s ALA Conference!
