Librivox Needs Your Help

Posted on

Librivox.org has produced over 7,000 free audio books which have been downloaded over 100 million times. All of this produced by volunteers on a show string. The organization counts some 40,000 registered volunteers who produce audio versions of books that are in the public domain. Some of these productions are really excellent.

It is a valuable resource to everyone who enjoys listening to books and learning how to product audiobooks.

It takes a lot of infrastructure to keep an organization like this up and running. They don’t often ask for help or for donations, but right now they are. They have a target of $50,000. And they need your help to make it happen.

Like you, I enjoy podcasts and I know I have enjoyed free audio all over the internet and this is one of the real treasures. If you want to take a listen to one of their audiobooks, here is a podcast version of Tom Sawyer audiobook produced by LibriVox.

Please donate whatever you can. ┬áHere’s a link to the donation page.
