Introducing the Classroom Library Connector

The Classroom Library Connector increases student engagement with classroom books and fosters collaboration between teachers and media specialists.

Save teachers’ time with our ISBN scanner to catalog books in classroom libraries and allow students to easily discover titles in their rostered classes. An organized library makes it easier for students to find exactly what they are looking for, whether it is a fiction book or nonfiction book.

Allow teachers and media specialists to create classroom reading challenges and share titles across the school to get students reading more.

Strengthen independent reading habits with gamification software proven to create sustained reading motivation.

Revolutionize classroom library organization with the Classroom Library Connector. It is complementary to any classroom library system educators have in place, whether that is shelf labels, genre labels, book bins, or other types of library labels.
