Lerner Digital Launches Android Ebook App with 3,000 Titles


Lerner Digital, a division of Lerner Publishing Group, has announced the launch of its Lerner Digital eReader App for Android devices, featuring more than 3,000 available K–12 ebook titles across many interest areas and genres. The app, which is available free in the Google Play Store, is the Android equivalent of the iOS Lerner Digital eReader App that the publisher originally debuted for the iPad in October 2011.

The new app “enables children, parents, teachers, and librarians to experience our books in new ways leveraging Android devices,” says Terri Soutor, executive vice president of marketing and digital products, Lerner Universal Corporation. “We wanted to make our complete ebook collection accessible on Android devices, which was in direct response to the evolving needs of our school and library customers.”

Both versions of the app allow users to select, download, and read from among Lerner’s ebook collection, including award-winning nonfiction, picture books, graphic novels, chapter books, and young adult novels. Selections can be searched for filtered by category, age, or other common attributes.

“Given the importance of digital literacy in the Common Core State Standards and in our daily lives, it’s important that children have access to exceptional digital content that makes use of the best that technology can offer to enrich teaching and learning,” adds Adam Lerner, president and publisher, Lerner Publishing Group. “’m encouraged by the promise of enabling digital literacy in schools, and I’m thrilled that our books are now more mobile and more accessible than ever before.”
