“[Libro supports] indie bookstores and small business communities. Several large, online companies are working hard to smash small businesses as best they can. Libro.fm is another ally in the fight to preserve locally owned businesses run by local people. It’s a wonderful audiobook alternative I can offer my customers, which I like.” —Annie, The Neverending Bookshop

“All year long you folks are great at creating interesting/relevant playlists and programs and even all of the (beautiful!) graphics and fantastic help with all of the words we could ever want to use to spread the word via any/all media we choose. But this last week you have outdone yourselves! Supplying us with multiple amazing playlists, as well as graphics and thoughtful verbiage for us to use. All to help us help our customers get the books they are wanting to read/listen to right this very moment. Talk about all we could ask for (and more!) in a partner! Doing whatever you can to help our customers… outstanding. We so much appreciate it! Thank you!” —Elaine, Edmonds Bookshop
