Switch and support local bookstores.
When you make the switch from Audible to Libro.fm, you support Word Up Community Bookshop—keeping money within your local economy, creating local jobs, and making a difference in your community.
Why you should switch to Libro.fm
Support local bookstores
We split profits with independent bookstores, who help build community and create local jobs.
Real booksellers write our recommendations, not algorithms.
You own your audiobooks
We offer 100% DRM-free downloads. This means you actually own each audiobook purchased, and have the freedom to download and listen on any device you like.
Real people, always
When you email support at email@example.com, you are always communicating with a real human being. Our team is full of bookworms who love reading as much as you do.
We are listening
When you give us feedback, we listen. Reader requests drive our tech updates to improve your listening experience.
We’re a Social Purpose Corporation
As an SPC, we can make business decisions that aren’t solely for financial gain. Read our reports.

Danny Caine, owner of Raven Book Store in Lawrence, Kansas, shares seven ways you can resist Amazon in your daily life.Read the article
“Another company that underpays the people on which their platform is built has started selling audiobooks, which means it’s time for me to remind you that @librofm exists and a portion of your purchase goes to indie bookstores like us.”Wild Rumpus Books
“If your New Years resolution is to read more books and you want to invest in audiobooks, consider not supporting Jeff Bezos through Audible and instead give @librofm a try! Every audiobook you purchase sends a portion of the profit to your local indie! (Love you @belmontbooks ❤️)”Emma Giallongo
“Audible is being aggressive with New Year promotions, so a reminder that an Am*zon-free alternative is the wonderful @librofm AND will support the Indie bookstore of your choice! I am currently giving love from afar to @RedBalloonBooks.”Karuna Riazi
“When you buy audiobooks from @librofm, in addition to giving money to independent bookstores instead of a billionaire tool, you get great customer service.”Anne Ursu
“Just a reminder that if you’re a fan of audiobooks (I mean come on, they’re great) if you use Libro.fm, your audiobook purchase directly benefits an indie bookstore of your choice. It’s a great alternative to the other options out there. Can’t recommend it enough.”Clint Smith
