Calibre needs your support!
Calibre's service is free to members thanks to generous backing from the individuals, trusts and companies who support us.
"Each time I listen to a book I think of all the kind people who make the service possible. Without them my life would be impossible." Sheila from Wiltshire
We receive no government funding so every year we need to raise almost £1.3 million pounds. Calibre welcomes your support in any of the following ways.
Please make a donation. Donations are always appreciated and make a big difference to what we can achieve.
For example, while our digital service is expanding fast, many members prefer to stay with the tried and trusted cassette - but providing both adds nearly half a million pounds a year to our costs. It's thanks to our donors that we can continue to offer members this choice.

•cheques payable to Calibre can be sent to Calibre Audio Library, Aylesbury, Bucks HP22 5XQ, UK
