MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Jan. 30, 2008 – Capstone Publishers is launching a network version of the Capstone Interactive LibraryTM for use in entire schools, districts, and library systems. First introduced in January 2007 as an innovative way to improve reading skills with young learners, the Capstone Interactive Library has grown to nearly 200 titles, including many in bilingual format.

“Our Interactive books introduce new genres, increase fluency, and allow students to read at their independent reading level. They make reading fun for every learner as they leverage technology to accommodate so many different learning styles,” said Tom Ahern, CEO of Capstone Publishers. “Providing our customers with the most flexible access allows us to bring our titles to every computer in the building or at home 24/7.”

To expand learning and engagement, Capstone Publishers designed a free companion Web site for the Capstone Interactive Library at The site includes educational activities, online quizzes, links to the Interactive books, and many Capstone Publishers topics and characters.

The Capstone Interactive Library is compatible with any computer or interactive whiteboard, including Promethean Activeboard, SMART board, eBeam, Mimio, and Webster.

Customers interested in a trial version of the Capstone Interactive Library should contact their local direct sales representative by calling customer service at 800-747-4992 or by visiting any Capstone Publishers Web site and using the Sales Rep Locator tool.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: You may remember that I recently wrote an article about the Capstone Press Interactive CD's. They are a great resources for teachers to use to introduce one piece of comic literature to an entire classroom. You can see that article here.)
