Hello and thank you for checking us out!
We are a private international library looking for your support to bring e-books to whoever wants them, anywhere in the world. 

We primarily operate though a monthly membership payment system but realised that even at that (pretty cheap) price there are still many people, for whatever reason, who would still find that difficult to manage. Coupled with the fact that many public and school libraries are closing down or having funding cut, there are thousands, if not millions of people with difficulties accessing books. 

Frankly we are not very happy about that so we are using patreon as a pay what you can method to join our library, and if that amount happens to be zero dollars a month then that is fine too, just send us an email with the subject 'free acount' and we will get you signed up and reading. We are working on an honesty system here, so no need to worry about explaining your situation or having to answer any personal questions (we need name, age, country of residence and date of birth to make an account and these details will never be shared or sold to a third party).

We add new books every month from a varirty of generes and all you need is an account with us and a smartphone, tablet or computer with our app to read them. Members can request new books for us to purchase, which are also available in many different languages. 
For more details about the library and how to use it, you can visit our website at

For the sake of full disclosure we are still a business and pay wages for three members of staff, however this is a second job for us and so first of all any money in the business goes towards buying new books before we pay ourselves. A full breakdown of total income, book purchase costs and staff costs will be made available upon request. 

Again, thank you for your time. We hope you will support us if you can and happy reading everyone!
8 of 25 patrons
With 25 members we will be able to add an additional book to the library every month, giving you a minimum of 11 new books to read monthly.
