Including ads on Scribd allows us to provide even more access to our library for all users, not just those who maintain a subscription.

Users with a paid subscription should not be seeing ads. If you are a subscriber and are seeing ads displayed, confirm that you are signed in to the correct account. If you continue to see ads displayed, please contact our Support team.
