Barford Drama Group LogoBAB-LogoThere are two major sources of free public domain audio material we can recommend to you:

LibriVox – founded in 2005 – is a community of volunteers from all over the world who record public domain texts: poetry, short stories, whole books, even dramatic works, in many different languages. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain in the USA and available as free downloads on the internet. If you are not in the USA, please check your country’s copyright law before downloading.

  • Please visit the LibriVox Catalogue where you can search for books that interest you. You can search or browse by title, author, genre, language or reader (and, though not yet fully developed, by keyword), and you can look for all solo recordings by a particular reader, or their contributions to group recordings.
  • Their goal is to make all public domain books, in any language, available as free audiobooks. Would you like to help them to reach their goal? They always welcome new readers, prooflisteners, cover artists, or simply suggestions for books to read. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit

Internet Archive – library contains recordings ranging from alternative news programming, to ‘Grateful Dead’ concerts, to ‘Old Time Radio’ shows, to book and poetry readings, to original music uploaded by their users. Many of these audios and MP3s are available for free download. The Internet Archive also stores the Librivox Collection.
