In order to support schools and libraries and encourage read-aloud experiences during the COVID-19 outbreak, we are happy for educators and librarians to share our books with young readers, but we ask for your help in protecting our creators’ copyrights.
We can permit educators to create virtual readings of any of our titles at no charge within a closed platform for non-commercial use only, in the following ways until June 30, 2020:
Booksellers and librarians who are doing similar readings and/or live events should also follow the above guidelines. Any bookseller or librarian event may not be maintained in the archive of the social media platform used and appropriate measures should be taken to ensure that videos of the live events are not retained. Because these platforms automatically archive live events by default, when your event has concluded, please locate the recorded live video in your account (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) and delete it.
These terms are in effect until June 30, 2020.
By posting a reading, you are agreeing to abide by the above guidelines.
Any other organization or charity that is interested in doing online reading of our books should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all you are doing to help young people and their families through this difficult time.
