Bridges Downloadable Audiobooks & eBooks (formerly WILBOR)

*This service is available to Urbandale, Windsor Heights, and rural Polk County residents only. 

Bridges’s collection has fiction and nonfiction titles, as well as books for children and teens. Bestsellers and classics, history and humor, business and self help–you’ll find them all in Bridges.

Your library card is the “key” to downloading the books. From the Bridges website you can browse or search for a title you’d like to read or listen to, log in with your library card number, and download the title to your computer or mobile device. You can then enjoy the book on your computer, or transfer to many portable or mobile devices to carry with you.

This service, powered by OverDrive, is free with your library card. To get started, you will need to install free software. For audiobooks: OverDrive® Media Console™. To read eBooks, you’ll need Adobe® Digital Editions. Ebooks will check out for 2 weeks (and can be returned early!), audiobooks will check out for 1 week. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees!

For more information and to start downloading and listening, visit the Bridges website.
