Why Buy from Library Video Company?

Why Buy Videos From Library Video Company

Teachers want to use high quality video programs in their classrooms to make their lessons the best that they can be. But with so many choices available, it requires solid research to find videos that convey the appropriate curricular content, are grade-appropriate and priced fairly. Teachers don't have the time to do the research to find and evaluate these programs, let alone determine where to purchase them.

Library Video Company has made its mission to solve this problem since 1985. The programs we offer have been hand-picked and individually reviewed by educators and experts to ensure they are appropriate for use in the classroom, and our selection is second to none with over 16,000 programs. In addition, our products are priced fairly with no gimmicks to try to obscure the real prices.

Since 1990, we also have been creating high quality educational programming from our Schlessinger Media curriculum-focused division. The programs have been produced to support the K-12 curricular standards and have been designed specifically for teachers to use in a classroom setting.

Library Video Company has been the leading distributor of educational video to schools for 18 years and has reached the school primarily through the librarian. Now, we are offering teachers the same benefits, services, pricing and products as school librarians. Teachers pay the same low prices as librarians even if their purchases are small.

We understand that teachers are not as familiar with us, so we will introduce the many benefits we can offer.
