Volunteer Resources

Volunteers and educators! Since schools are back in session, you may want to read a book out loud online, but there are some specific guidelines you must follow. They vary for each publisher.

Check out this list of permission pages from some of the biggest children’s book publishers and a few of our favorite ag books from them. Always double check where the book was published so you can be sure to follow the correct guidelines.
