WILBOR and NEIBORS are now BRIDGES: Iowa’s eLibrary

WILBOR and NEIBORS, Iowa's eBook and audiobook consortia through Iowa Library Services, have merged to form BRIDGES: Iowa's eLibrary. BRIDGES takes up where NEIBORS and WILBOR left off; user information has been transferred and the service will function the same as before.
Participating libraries' members have access to more than 16,500 eBooks and 7,500 audiobooks. 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 with 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.
This service is powered by OverDrive, which supports all major computers and devices and is free for patrons with their library card. To view participating libraries and start downloading audiobooks & eBooks, visit http://bridges.lib.overdrive.com.
