Leveled Libraries

With an effective leveled library, you can help your students develop critical literacy skills and a lifelong love of reading. As education professionals, we use our expertise to build leveled library collections that:
Appeals to your unique population
Targets your literacy goals
Aligns to your content needs
Utilizes your readability assessment data
Includes a wide variety of text types and formats


Your designated Classroom Services Coordinator will take the time to build a customized list for you, after a discussion on the needs of your classroom. Each title will be hand-selected with intention and purpose, building you a unique collection that caters specifically to your students.

Mackin has several packaging options to offer as a means of organizing your classroom library collections.

Book Sleeves


As part of Mackin’s standard processing on leveled library orders, the sleeves all receive:

Enhanced barcodes on sleeves (or pocket)

Reading level label on spine of sleeve

Colored protector over reading level label to color-coordinate according to level

Barcode on each individual book

White-Glove Delivery

To make the entire process as seamless as possible, your order will come shelf-ready; books will be in the packaging and organized by reading level to make for an easy move from box to shelf.

  • I have always received prompt, helpful, and courteous service from every Mackin representative with whom I’ve talked. The book orders are processed in a timely fashion, and the quality of the materials we receive are excellent.
