BY JAMES BENNETT & VOX BOOKS


James Bennett and Library Ideas Enter Agreement to Bring Vox Books to Schools and Libraries in ANZ

VOX Books™ to be exclusively available through leading local library supplier


James Bennett, the leading local Australian library supplier, and Library Ideas, an innovative media publisher, announce a strategic fulfillment agreement for the VOX Books™ read-along product line for libraries and schools.

VOX Books are hardcover picture books, chapter books, and nonfiction books that include a permanently attached reader preloaded with high-quality narration. This combination of print book and audio book allows the user to listen as they read along, helping them engage with books and develop the literacy skills needed for success in school and in life.

The agreement between James Bennett and Library Ideas will make it easier for libraries and K-12 schools to source VOX Books in Australia and New Zealand. James Bennett will be the sole source for Vox Books, managing local sales and handling order fulfillment, enabling customers to use their state-of-the-art ordering system James Bennett Online, and leading shelf-ready processing and library workflow solutions. VOX Books orders will ship from the James Bennett facility, utilising economies of scale in warehousing and shipping. 

Vox Books will be live on the James Bennett's ordering platform (JBO) by mid-June.

 

“It's always our goal to make doing business with us as easy as possible. This agreement moved that goal forward. It's very exciting to have found a partner that is so library centric,” said Brian Downing, CEO of Library Ideas.
