Wheelers ePlatform have recently launched their Audiobook shared collections in the UK, and are delighted to be able to offer Hampshire School Library Service Subscribers the opportunity to add audiobooks to your existing eBook collection through the Wheelers led, ePlatform One. Wheelers team of selectors have hand-picked the 550 unique Audiobooks, with a value of over £20,000 and include a mixture of popular fiction, modern best sellers and classic titles, focused for UK audiences with separate collections for both Primary & Secondary readers. Audiobooks have many proven benefits, including comprehension well above reading level, increased vocabulary & aiding our growing ESL population. Many titles will also be available in eBook format, so will allow students to read and listen simultaneously.

Schools who subscribe will be entering into an agreement with Wheelers direct for the additional package, and we are very pleased to confirm that we have negotiated a reduced first year cost from £995 to £300 for the first 50 schools to sign up. Your annual membership will commence on the date you request to be setup, and will renew 12 months following where you can choose whether or not to continue enjoying Audiobooks alongside the eBooks.

To discuss in more detail, review the collection being offered or to add Audiobooks to your eBook collection please contact James Richmond on 01594 546182 or by E-Mail at
