Ingram Adds Sesame Street Ebooks to ipage


By Matt Enis

Nashville-based Ingram Content Group has expanded its ebook selection for libraries and will now offer a subscription option for popular Sesame Street ebooks.

The new Sesame Street ebookstore subscription on ipage, Ingram’s collection development site, offers access to more than 150 read-along, audio, animated and interactive books through their Ingram library account, accessible via any browser. The ebooks can be read on Mac, iPad, and PC platforms.

“The habits of readers are changing and libraries need comprehensive digital solutions to meet the needs of their patrons,” Rich Rosy, vice president and general manager, Ingram Content Group library services, said in an April 30 announcement. “Through our e-book options on ipage and our MyiLibrary e-book platform, Ingram gives libraries one central location for all their needs in the digital age. We are pleased to add Sesame Street titles to our collection.”

The new Sesame Street collection for Ingram’s ipage is supported by iPublishCentral, the digital publishing platform developed by Impelsys.

“Ingram’s network of libraries will connect more children with our e-books, content that’s proven to help them reach their highest potential. We thank both Ingram and Impelsys for helping us expand our reach and make a difference in the lives of children worldwide,” Scott Chambers, senior vice president of worldwide media distribution for the Sesame Workshop, said in a release.
