Califa forms ongoing agreement to bring Total Boox to California libraries

Press Release: Total Boox [November 27, 2017]

San Mateo, CAŚ Total Boox, the ebook service that offers unlimited simultaneous access while minimizing cost with payment based on actual reading, and the Califa Library Group, the consortium of California public libraries, are pleased to announce that Califa will continue reselling the Total Boox service to its members following the conclusion of a pilot period. Califa members will receive a discount on Total Boox, making it even more affordable to them.

"The new Califa agreement is a staunch proof of trust. While the pilot agreement was about building the service, this new agreement comes after tens of thousand of California library patrons have successfully made Total Boox part of their daily lives," said Yoav Lorch CEO and Founder of Total Boox. "No other ebook service can offer our absolute freedom of access, our quality catalog, and at such a reasonable price point. We bring our full collection to libraries small, medium or large, and play an important role inclosing the painful Digital Divide. Librarians and patrons of top libraries including San Jose, Palo Alto, and Oakland find our service indispensable and affordable. We look forward to working with more California libraries."
