A Letter from the Scribd CEO to Our Community

In Company Updates, Scribd News by Trip Adler


At Scribd, we believe reading is the most powerful tool we have for connecting and sharing the human experience.

Today, with millions of people around the globe staying close to home to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, access to books and information is more important than ever before. Reading can offer incredible comfort: it reduces anxiety and makes us feel more accomplished and even happier. So, for the next month, we will be making Scribd’s library — which includes millions of ebooks, audiobooks, magazine articles, and more — available to anyone, free, for 30 days through this linkThere is no credit card or commitment required. Our goal is simply to ensure everyone has access to their favorite books, authors, and quality content as we settle into our new normal for the next few weeks.

Need a recommendation on something to read? The Scribd team is here for you! Whether you’re looking for entertainment, expert resources on managing stress, healthy activities for your children, or just a way to mentally escape, we want to help the best way we know how — through books!

We certainly don’t have all the answers, but we’re committed to exploring new ways to better connect readers to other readers, authors, and even the people behind the scenes here at Scribd during these trying times.

We encourage you to take care of yourself and each other, and we hope reading can offer you solace during these difficult times.

Founder & CEO, Scribd
