Calibre Audio Library brings the joy of audio books to those unable to read print because of sight loss, dyslexia or physical disability. Set up over 40 years ago by a mother whose partially-sighted son struggled to read the printed word, Calibre is now a national-charity with over 14,000 members. A one-off joining fee of £35 for adults (£20 for under 16s) provides a whole lifetime of unlimited access to over 11,000 unabridged titles.


Our audio books can be borrowed via our free postal service on CD and memory stick or streamed online and downloaded via our app so they really can be taken anywhere. With no monthly subscription or any hidden costs, our members can always have audio books at their fingertips.


  • Over 11,000 unabridged fiction and non-fiction audio books
  • All human voice recordings - no synthetic speech
  • No charges for lost, damaged or overdue books
