Lectorum opened its doors in 1960 as a trade bookstore, catering to the needs of the general public and college students in the New York Metropolitan area. Lectorum soon became a nation-wide distribution center serving public schools, public libraries, universities, and bookstores. Since then, Lectorum Publication has grown to become the largest Spanish language book distributor in the country with over 25,000 titles from more than 500 domestic and foreign publishers.
Over the years, Lectorum has earned an outstanding reputation as a service-oriented organization with a strong commitment to meeting the needs of its customers. Lectorum's vast network of resources allows for special ordering services through which many customers have obtained materials they were unable to find elsewhere.
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.
Lectorum also boasts the largest and most diverse selection of Spanish language books for adults, ranging from the most current and popular titles to perennial classics.
In addition to schools and libraries, Lectorum distributes to the trade and to various specialized markets. Several catalogs are produced each year which cater to these different markets.
Lectorum is also the publisher of many fine children's books in Spanish. This diverse collection of publications includes the Spanish language translations of Kevin Henkes, Kate DiCamillo, and the Magic Tree House as well as original works in Spanish such as Cuando los grandes eran pequeños, the acclaimed, award-winning series about Latin American and Spanish writers when they were children.
Our title listing is constantly evolving. We have a wide selection of books in English as well as other world languages. Please contact us if you would like us to design classroom libraries, help with collection development or offer assistance in aligning books to your curriculum.
