S&S strikes partnership with Library Link

Simon & Schuster (S&S) has struck a new partnership with public libraries in the UK.

Library Link is a dedicated resource for public libraries and librarians, enabling them to communicate directly with Simon & Schuster’s fiction editorial team about books, authors and events.

The service will include suggestions about how best to serve and engage libraries’ local communities, a monthly newsletter and dedicated Twitter feed.

Publishing director Clare Hey said: "We see Library Link as an essential element in our ongoing commitment to engaging with readers all across the UK."

Editorial director Anne Perry added: "Libraries are a vital part of our local communities, and it is our duty and our privilege to assist them to the fullest extent of our ability."

Brand development Director Sara-Jade Virtue said: "It is outrageous to see how our libraries are being failed, and we are fully committed to doing everything in our power to support them in every way."

Libraries and librarians in the UK can join Library Link by emailing library.link@simonandschuster.co.uk or on Twitter at @LibraryLink2.
