Classroom Library Company
What we are deeply passionate about:
Helping children get the best possible education, with the best possible literature. Literacy is the key to all success.
Making our customers smile through fantastic service. It takes two managers to say no to one customer. We go out of our way to make happy customers.
Having a great time while we are delivering great service. It has to be fun, otherwise why do it? You may be surprised, but we like talking with our customers. We will probably ask you lots of questions--don't mind us, we are super friendly folks. The better we know you, the more we can help your students succeed. And we really DO want to know what you're reading. And having for lunch. And where we should go when we visit your hometown.
Doing more with less. We constantly look for new ways to keep cost down and deliver the best and lowest cost products to our customers.
Our people make everything possible. Our managers, our operations folks, and your local sales reps all take pride in working together as a team to make it all happen. We are a collaborative team; we have no private offices, so we are always helping each other and looking for new ideas. Most of us have come from large corporate environments and we have chosen to make this company as small and efficient as possible. We are the anti-corporate company. You can pick up the phone and talk to our President, Ben Conn, anytime--his cell phone number is 516-369-0087.
What we are the best at:
Our fantastic relationships with publishers, manufacturers, authors, staff developers, and teachers give us a unique advantage in delivering many different types of literature to the K-8 market. We will use any means necessary to match the right materials with every child. Literature, Magazines, Graphic Novels, and Picture Books--anything we can find that will work in your classroom. Our CEO is a Reading Specialist with over 20 years of both classroom and private publishing experience!
We make it easy for schools by taking out the cumbersome time it would take to create a perfect classroom library. We do all the work for you. Based on your specific needs, grades, levels, themes, genres etc, we select those titles for you (simplifying the process and combining many publishers into one easy to read purchase order) and then package your custom classroom library in a ready-to-use display box. That means your books are packaged in the box that you display them in! No matching up books, no confusing paperwork! Just open and use!
We act with speed. Every order is the most important order to us. We promise fast response times to questions, excellent service and when we do make a mistake, making it right by you. No surprises. Things happen all the time, we believe that you are entitled to our No surprise promise. If something changes or if there is a delay, it is our job to over communicate this with you. We promise to do our best meet your expectations.
We embrace diversity--we are all equal regardless of race, gender, and religion. Diversity is what makes each one of unique and special. We empower our people to employ their talents.
What drives our economic engine?
Everyday low prices, no minimum orders and solving your classroom library needs. We restore used textbooks, for those schools that are heavily invested. We pick up, drop off and will even send you boxes if needed! We pledge to try and make every dollar from your budget count.
We sell only brand new top quality products. We refuse to sell cheaper used books or book fair quality editions.
We are humble. We recognize how lucky we are to launch a new company in these hard economic times and we know where came from. That's why we give till it hurts. Let us know your needs and we will do our best to donate time, money, or products. We will do what we can to help your organization.
