Read Aloud Program

Our full repertoire of books is available to educators and librarians doing online story-times! Let’s share stories and get through this together.

“As we collectively grapple with school closings and the shift to online learning, we want to help ensure educators and librarians can confidently bring Canadian stories and literature to students and others during this challenging time.

Many Canadian publishers have received requests from educators and librarians seeking permission to read part of or all of a book and to share a video of the reading for ‘online story-time’.

In response, the Association of Canadian Publishers has formed the Read Aloud Canadian Books Program with Access Copyright.”
