About Scholastic Library Publishing, Inc.

Not sure what Scholastic Classroom and Library Group publishes? Look it up. The company publishes educational, non-fiction children's, and reference books. It produces the Encyclopedia Americana (the first encyclopedia published in the US) through its Grolier imprint. Other Scholastic Classroom and Library imprints include Franklin Watts (for intermediate-grade and secondary school levels) and Children's Press (for preschool through middle schoolers). Its Grolier Online unit is a research portal and electronic database collection. In addition, the division sells Scholastic Trade books to the school library market. The group is a unit of children's book publisher Scholastic.

Scholastic Classroom and Library operates as part of its parent company's Educational Publishing business segment, which also has units devoted to classroom magazines and teaching materials. Revenues from the classroom and library market were negatively impacted by a reduction in available public funding during fiscal year 2009.  However, the group began to see an increase in sales in early 2010 as a result of the federal stimulus program.

The company's Children's Press publishes some 250 non-fiction titles a year. Franklin Watts publishes about 100 non-fiction titles a year. In addition to the Encyclopedia Americana, Grolier offers The New Book of Knowledge and 75 other reference titles.
