New Vendor! CLCD, the Single Source, Single Search Resource for Children’s Literature Needs

CLCD, LLC has been dedicated to supporting the library and education community for over two decades. Its mission is to provide a reliable, comprehensive resource for young readers to find books that will significantly impact their lives. The company has developed a suite of three products with a soon to be released fourth product.

The CLCD database has the most comprehensive PreK-12 children's literature resource available for locating books and media, making it the ideal resource to meet the wide range of needs for schools, public libraries and academic institutions. The CLCD products are being described as the "single source, single search" resource for meeting children’s literature needs.

The CLCD database and supporting content includes over 1 million fiction and non-fiction titles dating from the 1700s to today including most of the children's books annually introduced by American publishers. The titles are enhanced with over 600,000 professional reviews from 52 review sources. It also has annual lists prepared by ALA, YALSA and ALSC as well as reading metrics (Lexile, Scholastic Reading Counts, and Accelerated Reader).
