LibriVox Counts 100M Downloads, Gets Mellon Grant

LibriVox.org, a website that makes public domain audiobooks available for free through the Internet Archive, has seen 100 million audiobooks downloaded. In recognition, the volunteer-run LibriVox has received a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Here is more about how they will spend the grant from LibriVox’s website: “The Mellon grant will go towards rebuilding LibriVox’s technical infrastructure, and improving accessibility of the LibriVox website (if you’re interested in a job helping with this, see this post).”

LibriVox founder Hugh McGuire added this statement: “It will be put to good use, helping our hard-working volunteers create many more free audiobooks. We’ve made 5,500 free audiobooks to date, and we hope to make many more in the future.”
