Classroom libraries provide a literacy-rich environment that contains authentic literature, offering windows and mirrors to the world.
Experts agree classrooms should have 7-10 books per student, and collections should grow every year. Mackin’s experienced in-house educators work with you to pinpoint the exact needs of your students. We then use that information to create customized, intentional book collections including your choice of print and/or digital resources. Mackin is an innovative leader in services for school libraries and classrooms, and our deeply held value for diverse literature and a customized approach is what makes us unique.
