The story behind our subscription-based online academic library and how it’s helping learners, publishers, and the planet alike.

Updated over a week ago

Here at Perlego, we believe education is a human right. As part of our mission to make learning accessible to all, we've built an online library with accessibility, affordability, and sustainability at its core.

For less than the price of a single book per month, you can have access to our entire online library, available on the web and Perlego app. With over 1 million books across more than 1,000 different topics - from Archeology to Zoology - we’ve got you covered!

Perlego is available worldwide with books in English, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and French as part of the collection so far … and we’re not stopping there!

📖 Our Story

All of our team has been a student at some point and is familiar with that shock of realising how expensive academic books can be. It’s why our founders, Gauthier and Matt, created Perlego in 2016.

Textbook prices continue to skyrocket, causing unnecessary anxiety and excluding many from the education system altogether. With students unable to afford the resources they need, piracy and second-hand book sales are also on the rise, leaving researchers, authors, and the publishing industry at a loss too.

Perlego was born to provide an affordable and sustainable textbook solution for learners, by partnering with publishers and removing the costs of print, distribution, and retail markups.

🌱 Our Mission

We're dedicated to improving the lives of learners globally, supporting researchers, providing trustworthy resources, and building a more sustainable future in which we can all reach fuller potentials.

🌟 Our Promises

We’re committed to building an impactful service that aids every type of learner. We also know we're young and still have a lot of growing to do, so listening to and learning from your feedback is our top priority.

We promise to be open and honest at every step of the way. By sharing our journey with you, we can build a product that people love and can benefit from.

We'll always strive for inclusivity, both in the way we run our business, and the way we build Perlego.

We stand by our integrity to deliver a product that improves the lives of learners around the world as we continue to build a community we're proud of.
