One Up has been supplying books to schools across India since 2011. We nurture relationships with the best publishers and book agents across the globe to provide our readers with a unique collection, combining contemporary titles with beloved classics.

One Up is committed to creating libraries within schools, so that every reader, even the reluctant one, discovers the magic of reading. Our aim is not just to create pleasure in reading, but to exercise the imagination, argue with the writer, comprehend both the literal and figurative meanings and create children who are able to relate their reading to real-life.

If you would like to join the ranks some of the best school libraries in India, contact us here.



Book Exhibitions

The Book exhibition is valuable for all stakeholders- children, parents and educators. One Up offers schools book exhibitions based on parameters like Lexiles, genres and themes. We can customize these exhibitions around your desired units of study in science, social studies, math as well as language and literature. In addition to a unique and curated collection, we work closely with the school librarian and parents. Workshops with parents on raising readers or building a reading culture are also included. Our trained representatives’ aid book selection and make the experience of a One Up book exhibition a unique one.
