A Message About Story Times and Read-Aloud Videos

In these uncertain and unsettling times, many of you are wondering how we can collectively continue to share our books and stories with students and readers everywhere. As a company, we are heartened by the role that books and reading can play to help connect us when we are physically apart. As you may know, our teams at Penguin Random House have been working quickly to enable virtual learning environments and livestreamed story times for educators, librarians, and booksellers, as well as our authors and illustrators. Today, we are pleased to share our plans for the open license we designed as an immediate measure to directly connect our books with students and readers while protecting the long term value of our authors’ and illustrators’ intellectual property. You’ll find all the details here.

Thank you for your shared commitment to storytelling and reading, and to our collective belief in the power of books to connect us—especially during times like these.

Extension of Temporary Covid-19 Terms for Libraries

As the second year of the pandemic health crisis continues to have a wide-ranging disruptive impact on schools and libraries nationwide, Penguin Random House is again extending its Temporary Library Terms of Sale: Special Program in Response to COVID-19, to now run for all of 2021, through December 31.

Penguin Random House sells its imprints’ books through wholesalers, who have been provided with the temporary-pricing models, which continue in place, and these accounts are all eligible to participate, based on their respective systems’ capacity to accommodate and implement these temporary terms.
