PLEASANTON, Calif., July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Classroom2Classroom, LLC announces the launch of their new on-line marketplace, www.Classroom2Classroom.com, that provides the K-12 education community a platform to buy and sell new and used classroom library books.  With this new marketplace, educators are able to bundle books by theme, grade level, or reading metric and offer them for sale to others anywhere in the nation.  For buyers, the marketplace allows them to quickly search for book bundles that address the reading needs of their students, thereby improving the quality of their classroom reading center or library.  

"A classroom library is an integral part of a vibrant learning environment," said Marc Schweitzer, Education Consultant.  "Building and maintaining a functional classroom library or reading center requires a significant investment of time and money on the part of the teacher.  People may not realize it, but a typical classroom library holds 600+ titles, and this investment comes out of the teacher's pocket.  A marketplace like Classroom2Classroom will save teachers time by leveraging the knowledge of other teachers and it will save money as it is a marketplace for both used and new books."

"Classroom2Classroom is a unique internet marketplace tailored to the specific needs of the classroom teacher," said Mike Serrano, Founder, Classroom2Classroom.  "Our site is the result of countless conversations with educators in rural, urban, public and private schools.  One of the unique challenges faced by educators is building a classroom library that allows children to expand their reading ability.  To do this, teachers have developed a number of ways to organize their libraries and what we've done is leverage that knowledge and put it into a marketplace where teachers can buy and sell books they no longer use and share their knowledge about those books with others.  Additionally, we offer a number of unique selling features like comparative pricing information and allowing buyers to search on a number of unique reading metrics."
