Turtleback Books® offers the largest and best selection of hardcover books for the library and school markets; our niche is providing long-lasting hardcover editions of books that are usually only available as paperbacks. Library binding, or prebinding, significantly extends the life of a book, resulting in dramatic cost savings over time.

While we make these products for libraries and schools, we don’t sell directly to libraries and schools: We sell exclusively to wholesalers and resellers serving those markets.

Turtleback Books are high quality and stand up to the heavy use associated with libraries and classrooms – with a lifetime guarantee. Our Vinabind® trademark dates back to 1962, and our skilled and experienced work force uses the finest materials and processes in the industry. With more than 50 years of binding experience, Turtleback Books is committed to being the best choice for quality library-bound books.
