Scobre Press Corporation was founded in 1999. The company was created by two 21-year-old college students who had grown up without a true love of reading. Inspired by the idea of producing relevant and engaging young adult books that would have appealed to themselves as readers, Scobre has created a successful line of educational books designed to truly interest young people.
Scobre’s library consists of over 100 fiction and nonfiction titles, each available on two reading levels. Scobre has sold hundreds of thousands of its books to elementary, middle, and high schools across the country.
In January 2017 Scobre was acquired by Lightswitch Learning, a national K-12 publisher and sales organization. Lightswitch Learning plans to continue the Scobre tradition of producing high-quality books that young people want to read.
