Libro.fm is an employee-owned Social Purpose Corporation that shares profits from your audiobook purchases with your chosen bookstore, giving you the power to keep money within your local economy.

Collage of booksellers

Libro.fm began as a conversation among friends at Third Place Books, a local bookstore in Seattle, Washington, about the growing popularity of audiobooks and the lack of a way for readers to purchase them from independent bookstore.

Flash forward, and Libro.fm was founded in 2014. The team then spent nearly two years speaking with booksellers about their needs and suggestions, while also building our catalog of audiobooks and developing our platform, including iOS and Android apps.

Today, Libro.fm partners with more than 2,500 bookstores around the world to sell audiobooks and has members in 60 countries and counting.

How Libro.fm works

We care about supporting small businesses because we are a small business.
