What is Libro.fm all about?
Libro.fm makes it possible for you to buy audiobooks through your local independent bookshop, giving you the power to keep money within your local economy, create local jobs, and make a difference in your community. Whether you are paying for a monthly membership, giving an audiobook gift to a friend, or buying audiobooks for your organisation, Libro.fm shares the profit from your purchases with your local bookshop. Libro.fm believe that independent bookshops are vital to communities, and want to see them thrive.
Who are Libro.fm?
Libro.fm began as a conversation over beers at a local bookshop in Seattle, and since then they've grown their community to include 14,000+ booksellers from over 2,200+ bookshops and listeners from all over the world.
As a Social Purpose Corporation, their mission is to use technology to increase access to books while supporting independent bookshops. They are also committed to doing their part to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion within the book industry.
Libro.fm is a sustainable, alternative to Audible. Libro.fm is one of the few places where every audiobook is DRM-free, or as we call it, cage-free. Meaning you can listen to the audiobook anytime, anywhere, on any device.
Libro.fm recognise that audiobook lovers have a choice where they purchase audiobooks. When you buy your audiobooks at Libro.fm, you support a local bookshop with every purchase!
Aiming for more ethical consumption—of what you buy, where you shop, and who you support—is an admirable goal, but a tricky one. Still, if you have the financial and logistical means to do so, the results are powerful.
