We are open to the public, however, we ask that patrons take precautions to limit the possible transmission of illness.  We encourage patrons to wear face masks and practice social distancing.  We are closing 30 minutes earlier each day to allow time for cleaning. 

eBook & Audio

Bridges, Iowa's eLibrary, is our shared collection of electronic resources.  Ebooks, digital audiobooks, video-on-demand, magazines, and more are available.  From kids to teens to adults, there is something for everyone.  There are even graphic novels.  eBooks may be borrowed for one or two weeks, and there are no late fees!  The use of Bridges is free to library patrons.  

Bridges is accessible from any smart phone, tablet, or computer with internet access.  The user-friendly app, Libby, is also available for Android and iOS devices.  Books and other content can be downloaded to e-readers like Kindle and Nook.
