Download Ebooks, Audiobooks For Free From Storm Lake Public Library
Best-selling and classic titles available anytime, anywhere


Storm Lake Public Library name is participating in BRIDGES: Iowa’s eLibrary, offering eBooks and audiobooks available to download for free anytime, anywhere. Library patrons can check out and download digital media by visiting bridges.lib.overdrive.com.  Bridges takes up where NEIBORS/WILBOR left off.  If you were using NEIBORS/WILBOR, your information has been transferred and you’ll be very familiar with how things work.

Storm Lake library patrons 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- there are no late fees!

“This is a great way to make the library’s resources available to our users 24/7/365,” said Library Director Elizabeth Huff.  “You don’t have to come to the library building to check out a book, and you don’t have to return it.  The book automatically ‘returns’ to the collection for someone else to borrow.”

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 get started downloading audiobooks & eBooks, visit bridges.lib.overdrive.com.
