We’ve captured more details below about getting started with Libro.fm.
Create Your Libro.fm Account
While you might be eager to start listening, don't open the Libro.fm app yet. First, open the Libro.fm website on your phone or computer and create an account. Enter your email, and you will immediately receive an email to confirm your account. Once confirmed, complete the rest of the sign-up process. Remember your username and password as you’ll need it to access the Libro.fm app! If you forget your password, reset it here.
Choose Your Bookstore
Visit the Partner Stores page and choose your independent bookstore. Whenever you purchase an audiobook through Libro.fm, you’ll support this bookstore!
Buy Your First Audiobook
You’ll need to decide if you want to buy one audiobook at a time (à la carte) or become a member and pay $14.99/month for one audiobook per month. À la carte is great for the occasional listener, while the monthly membership is best for frequent listeners.
Get your first month of membership for free, and then your credit card will be automatically charged $14.99 every month after that. As a member, you get one credit per month to purchase any audiobook and credits never expire. You can also choose to save your credits and buy the audiobook à la carte at a 30% member discount. You can choose what works best for you in the shopping cart.
You can gift individual audiobooks to friends and family by adding the audiobook to your cart, selecting the gift option, and entering the recipients email address. When you gift an audiobook to someone, they will be prompted to create a free Libro.fm account and then guided through the process of accessing their audiobook gift.
If you have a Libro.fm monthly membership, you get a 30% discount on all audiobook gifts. We do not offer the ability to gift memberships at this time, though we're working on it. Visit our gift center to learn more.

The Libro.fm App
Listen to your Libro.fm audiobooks anytime, anywhere.
Download the App
Listening on our app is the best way to enjoy your audiobooks, as we have features that make listening easier and more enjoyable for you! Features include sleep timer, bookmarking, listening at higher speeds, organizing your library (archiving and deleting audiobooks), and more! With our free app, enjoy great audiobooks during your commute, workout, chores, and more! Our app is compatible with iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, and most iPods), Android, and the Kindle Fire.
You can also open the app store and search for "Libro.fm Audiobooks."
If you don’t have a smartphone or device compatible with the app, you can download our DRM free (we call it cage-free) MP3 files and listen on your computer or another device. Check out our download guide for more details.
Listen to Your Audiobooks
Listening on our app is the best way to enjoy your audiobooks. We have created videos and other tips to help you get the most out of the app.
A Couple of Tips:
- Make sure you have the latest iOS and Android app on your device as we are always adding new features.
- Connect to WiFi. If you have trouble downloading your audiobook, the best approach is to give your device a hard reset by powering down and trying again. Our sound quality is 2x the industry standard, which also means our files are larger and require more space and download time.
- Watch the videos to learn about the sleep timer, bookmarking, listening at higher speeds, organizing your library (archiving and deleting audiobooks), and more.
- It’s not possible to purchase audiobooks through the app. Please visit the Libro.fm website to buy your audiobooks. We recommend adding a website bookmark link to Libro.fm on the homescreen of your phone to easily access the website (how to set up a bookmark on iOS).
