Boopsie continues to branch into educational services by providing libraries with free access to TakeLessons through Boopsies mobile apps for libraries.

Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 2014

Boopsie, Inc. announced a strategic partnership with TakeLessons, an innovative startup that connects students with instructors locally and online, to deliver its services to public library patrons through Boopsies network of library-branded mobile apps.

In May, we surveyed our libraries and found that 68% were interested in adding more educational content, programming and integrations to their apps, says Boopsies CEO, Tony Medrano. Our team is working hard to deliver exclusive educational services to our libraries and their communities, and is excited about the growth of TakeLessons services in many of the same cities serviced by our network of public libraries.

TakeLessons was founded in 2006 with the goal of connecting talented music instructors with passionate students. Since its founding, the company has expanded into 500 service categories, with access to not only music instructors, but also academic tutors and performing arts instructors, and beyond, in over 4,000 cities nationwide. TakeLessons is the trusted online marketplace for finding highly qualified and well-vetted instructors, allowing students to follow their dreams and fuel personal growth by connecting with the perfect instructor and taking affordable lessons in their homes, in-studio or online. TakeLessons further enables both students and teachers to use its website tools to seamlessly schedule lessons, manage accounts and invoices, as well as process payments.

We are thrilled to aid Boopsies expansion into offering innovative educational programs to the network of libraries utilizing their mobile platform, said Chris Waldron, co-founder of TakeLessons. TakeLessons large network of local instructors and students will enable libraries to offer exciting new local services to libraries and their communities.

The integration will be provided free-of-charge to all 2,500 Boopsie libraries, ensuring that library patrons across the United States have the opportunity to access quality instruction from any of TakeLessons 20,000 active teachers, online or in-person. Boopsie will leverage the TakeLessons API to provide an in-app user experience that will allow patrons to search available lessons through the librarys app.
