In 2167, three years after Terran Borealis itself was founded, Prime Minister Andrew Bultimeyer wanted to improve literacy rates, so he purchased a small, struggling book publisher and turned it into a profitable company that disdained profits. Not that profits aren't bad, but that all profits would be used to build libraries in developing areas. He met a secretary named Amber Williams while he was trying to purchase the original book publisher. He fell in love with her and they married. Their son, Josiah, now runs the company with his two sisters (Rachel and Mikayla) running sales and store design, respectively.


If your publisher is accepted, the books and/or periodicals can be purchased for your shelf.

This type of library requires an established library present within the city.

We are pleased to announce new libraries will be built in five cities in Separate Texas! Especially in Del Rio. We hope that the literacy increases to at lest 85% by the end of this year. Many works are written in the rich, beautiful language called Spanish, but many of us cannot understand it. Rio Grande Press will help bridge that gap, and will be carried in all BBB stores!

Even though your application does not follow the form, we will still build two brand-new libraries in Port Fletcher and in West Darwin! Also, despite the Literacy being 100%, which is impressive, we will still build them simply to add more literature to those areas. Merry Reads!

After a clear-up, we are proud to announce the building of 18 new libraries! We hope the literacy jumps to at least 25% in the next month. Perhaps sitting at 67% by this time next year. Please teach everyone how to read so they can read and be transported to other worlds or find out more about ours. Many Merry Reads in the Future!
