The Ivy Bookshop

“Thank you for all Libro is doing to support independent bookstores right now (and always). So glad we are a part of a community that includes you.”

Hannah / The Ivy Bookshop
Changing Hands

“Your community support, your customer service, your dedication to indie bookstores is how we will get through this. For me, the audiobooks are a lifesaver for personal (health) reasons. To buy and use them is so easy! ”

Nancy / Changing Hands
Trident Booksellers and Cafe

“I have been DEVOURING the free audiobooks—thank you for this program! It's excellent! It's got me to read some books I wouldn't normally have picked up and I LOVED them (and have subsequently handsold). I have been meaning to try audiobooks for a while to accompany me on my commute and these have been a godsend. ”

“You are amazing! Your customer service alone proves that is the way to go and I hope to continue to sell my customers into the program!”

Lisa / Ink Fish Books

“Derek and Joanna, the owners of Bookbug and This is a bookstore, are two of the best people you will ever meet! They have built a store that is a gathering place, a beacon for the curious, and a force for justice and equity in our community. And they sell books and coffee! I'm so glad that your service exists for them and for others like them. They are so fierce and passionate in their independence and their sense of mission, and you help put them on the same footing as the giants in the audiobook marketplace. So, yeah, thanks for helping the little ones win, and I hope it turns out to be a big win for you, too.”

R.J. Julia Booksellers

“As my friends will tell you, I am a techno-phobe...I don't have a smart phone and have a hard time even navigating all the remote controls in my home to get Nexflix on my tv! Given all that, I was thrilled to find using so easy! I do have a tablet and downloaded the app and books. I have been very successful in explaining to RJ's customers and I am very excited to be able to offer this service. Thank you! ”

Jill / R.J. Julia Booksellers

“I’m really enjoying using, the app is so nice to use, the range of books is excellent & you are always so quick at answering questions. Thank you for providing some genuine competition in the audiobook market. It can only be a good thing for authors, publishers & readers.”

Rochelle / SOPHOS
Arcadia Books

“I absolutely love Libro. I have a one block walking commute so I tend to listen while I'm folding laundry or cleaning. It makes those tasks so much more enjoyable. ”

Nancy / Arcadia Books
Malaprop's Bookstore

“I love that my membership and use of Libro for gift giving -- and, selfishly, for my own reading pleasure -- helps support one fine independent bookstore. Malaprop's has had me as a customer since they opened their doors over 30 years ago. I'm glad to have found Libro through them only recently, but I'll hope to be a customer of yours for quite a few more years to come.”
