Lectorum's main goal has always been to offer schools and libraries the best selection of children's books in Spanish, including works originally written in Spanish, as well as translations from other languages. All books are carefully reviewed by Lectorum's qualified staff to ensure that they meet the high standards of educators and librarians.

Our 54 years of working with teachers and administrators, assisting them in developing programs and libraries for their students, has earned us an outstanding reputation as a service-oriented organization with a strong commitment to meeting the needs of its customers, including providing bilingual curriculum, guided reading, dual language and Spanish books.

Besides being an exclusive distributor in the U.S. for 26 of the best Spanish books publishers in Spain and Latin America, Lectorum is also the publisher of many fine children's books in Spanish. This diverse collection of publications includes the Spanish language editions of Dr. Seuss and the Magic Tree House as well as original works in Spanish such as Cuando los grandes eran pequenos, the acclaimed series about Latin American poets when they were children. Lectorum has more than 250 price contracts with public school systems and public libraries of all scopes and sizes throughout the nation. Of these contracts, we serve nearly 8,550 public and private schools with more than 23,000 shipping locations, and service more than 1,600 libraries without contracts.

We have worked with NYC Dept. of Education since the mid 1970's. We have maintained their textbook and/or library contract for more than 25 years. From 2001 to 2008, Lectorum was an awarded vendor for the Mayor's Classroom Library initiative, which was for the sale of library books to the NYC elementary schools. This initiative gave us the responsibility for the distribution of 12,000 individual teachers' orders within the city's elementary schools. Lectorum�s performance under the Mayor's Classroom Library Initiative Bid was outstanding in achieving a100% delivery of 14,000 library sets on time and error free, according to the NYC DOE evaluation made by the office of the former chief administrator of school-based purchasing. In addition to New York City Public Schools, Lectorum has been doing business with Los Angeles Unified School District, Chicago Public Schools, Elizabeth Public Schools and Newark Public Schools, among others.
