Hi, I was wondering if contacting libraries to add Librivox to their website would be a good project. I called my local library and they did not know anything about Librivox. I think it would be a good way to increase readership of books in the public domain. What do you all think??

Various people have done it. There are some posters in the wiki https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Promotional_Material if you wanted 0r you could make your own if your library was interested.

Here is a link to business cards, which I distribute - in german (http://librivox.lorda.de/hintergrund/)

It means:
Free audiobooks from the public domain

Listen when there is no time to read

Invitation for anyone who wants to keep track of which libraries they have put posters up in here. To cheer each other on!

This is a great idea! I don't remember ever seeing a link to LV on any library's website. I'll put this on my to-do list for my local library and regional library system. Then I could contact a neighboring county...

To organize this effort, maybe we could start by reporting here which libraries we contact and the results.
