Random House and Bloomsbury have begun "buddying" programs to support their local libraries and library authorities. Random House deputy group sales director Ed Christie, who is pioneering the scheme with Oxfordshire libraries, says, "It's our own in-house initiative, but we've worked closely with the Reading Agency, which has put us in touch with particular librarians." He said the publisher was not selling to the libraries, instead helping them with more information and useful tools, such as children's activity packs and reading group recommendations.
Meanwhile, Bloomsbury has begun partnering with the Kensington and Chelsea, and East Sussex library services.
