“First Avenue Classics™ saved my library budget”

“First Avenue Classics™ saved my library budget.” —Janet Wile, Supervisor of Library Services, Central Unified School District, Fresno, CA

Janet Wile + First Avenue Classics

Janet Wile found a way to stretch her district’s book budget that will reap benefits for years. Instead of replacing hundreds of lost print copies of the classics each year, Janet purchased multi-user eBook editions of First Avenue Classics for the high school buildings in her district.

For the low school/library price of $14.99 per title, she gave hundreds of students simultaneous access to the classics they needed. And each school owns the eBooks forever—no hosting or subscription fees apply. Plus the money she saves in the future can be used for new title purchases, not resupplying lost books.

“First Avenue Classics are an incredible value,” says Janet. “With other eBook platforms, you must purchase individual copies of eBooks for use across your student population. But First Avenue Classics offer multi-user access. This simultaneous usage provides a cost-effective option that is dependable and reliable.”
