In 2014, Skyhorse Publishing announced Carrel Books, a new imprint featuring titles for the public library market. The Carrel list includes categories of most interest to libraries, including medicine/health, history, biography/memoir, business/careers, and more. Carrel titles are available to libraries and all other customers in both print and ebook editions.
When the imprint was founded, Tony Lyons, Skyhorse president and publisher, commented, "We appreciate the support we've received from librarians and the wholesalers that supply them. Without their support, our recent growth would have been impossible. With an imprint whose editorial and marketing team focuses on the needs of librarians and library patrons, we expect further growth and an even closer working relationship with the library community."
Carrel Books offers an eclectic mix of titles in terms of subject areas, but each book is tailored to the needs of librarians and their patrons: authoritative, well-written, and accessible.
