Read Aloud Canadian Books Program

Important changes to the Read Aloud Canadian Books Program as of July 1.

Access Copyright is pleased to now make the Read Aloud Canadian Books Program available as a licence add-on for K-12 independent school digital licensees as well as public library licensees.

The Read Aloud Canadian Books Program allows educators or librarians at digitally licensed K-12 independent schools or licensed public libraries that have signed the Read Aloud add-on to read all or part of select books from participating publishers and authors, and to post the video recording online or livestream the reading for non-commercial purposes.

To learn more, including how your school or library can sign up for the Read Aloud add-on, please contact us at info@accesscopyright.ca.
