Helping Language Communities Create Their Own Books

post-image

The Bloom Library provides an easy-to-use digital publishing platform that a local language community can quickly learn and generate books from to be used in classrooms and literacy groups. The tool solves a key problem that many communities face: They want to advocate for literacy in their local language but don't have enough books to help their community members practice what they are learning. 

Currently the platform has 5000 books in over 200 languages. It supports PDF, ePub, audio books and video. The platform facilitates Sign Language diglots, picture dictionaries, leveled/decodable readers and complex non-roman scripts. Visit www.bloomlibrary.org
