“Our new eReader App enables children, parents, teachers, and librarians to experience our books in new ways leveraging Android devices” said Terri Soutor, executive vice president of marketing and digital products, Lerner Universal Corporation. “We wanted to make our complete eBook collection accessible on Android devices, which was in direct response to the evolving needs of our school and library customers.”
