Bridges is the eBook, audiobook, and streaming video buying consortium for Iowa public libraries. The State Library of Iowa facilitates the program and manages the contract on behalf of the participating libraries.
Iowa Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped patrons have access to eBooks, audiobooks and streaming video available to download. Many titles offer multiple copies for checkout, and users can request to be emailed or automatically check out items when they become available. Digital content is borrowed for a set period of time and titles automatically expire at the end of the lending period- there are no late fees!
Users can browse the library’s website, check out with a valid library card, and access borrowed titles via PC, Mac, and mobile devices with free desktop and mobile apps.
