Here’s the latest news from audiobook provider Libro.fm:
Libro.fm set a goal to raise $50,000 for local bookstores in March, and they’ve just announced that they reached $73,632, which will be provided to bookstores in April. A recap and more details are on the Libro.fm blog. But there’s more — Libro.fm has shared the next part of #ShopBookstoresNow, which will go live on April 2:
Libro.fm has partnered with publishers and authors to feature a list of bestselling audiobooks that direct 100 percent of proceeds to local bookstores. These partners are generously forgoing revenue for these books from April 2–April 10 to support local bookstores during this challenging time. Find marketing materials on the Bookseller Hub and note that more audiobooks will be added to this list in the coming days. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to join as a partner bookstore.
