NEIBORS is now better and is called BRIDGES

Bridges

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

 

Williamsburg 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!

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 http://bridges.lib.overdrive.com.

Exciting update to Zinio, Digital Magazines:

The library's Zinio Collection just got better! Through forming a consortium with area libraries, the Williamsburg Public Library is now able to offer 120 digital magazines to our patrons.

 

The Zinio platform provides patrons with full digital copies of your favorite magazines that can be viewed on your computer or mobile device. The best part is that these magazines can be read by everyone at once and there is no due date!

 

Both previous and new Zinio users will have to do a one-time registration with your library card barcode and patron information.
