Rent audiobook online?
I really like the Audible experience and I love their selection. But I don't re-read books, I would rather rent or borrow them instead of owning them. My public library doesn't really have the selection of books I read. I am looking for an app or website like audible, that I can rent or borrow audiobooks.

my local library system has many books on CD and I sometimes use LINK+ which is like OverDrive/LIBBY for physical copies of books and movies to borrow through the local library.
I get a lot of books and audio dramas through podcasts most books in Public Domain have been posted as ebooks on Project Gutenberg and audio books on LibriVox.
LibriVox does have iphone and android app but since I usually download things as podcasts through iTunes, I have not used it recently.
There are audio magazine podcasts like StarShipSofa, Escape Pod, Clarke's World, and Levar Burton Reads
Many of my favorite modern indie audio dramas can be found on The Mutual Audio Drama Network or have been featured on Audio Drama RevivalSource(s): https://www.overdrive.com/ https://sfpl.libanswers.com/faq/103121 http://www.gutenberg.org/ https://librivox.org/ http://www.starshipsofa.com/ https://escapepod.org/ http://clarkesworldmagazine.com/ https://www.mutualaudionetwork.com/ https://www.radiodramarevival.com/

There are larger public library systems that will let out of town/state-ers borrow from them. They usually charge an annual fee, which would be what a website would do as well. You should be able to check out their selections before you commit.
This list is from 2016, so no guarantees, but it's a good start https://blog.the-ebook-reader.com/2011/09/22/libra...

I don't have any personal experience with them (I use my library and Audible), but I believe Downpour and Chirp both offer audiobook rentals. You might also see what's available through Overdrive.
