BRIDGES is the eBook, audiobook, magazine, and streaming video buying consortium for Iowa public libraries. The State Library of Iowa facilitates the program and manages the contract on behalf of the participating libraries. Libraries that participate in Bridges pay an annual formula-based fee to the State Library that covers the Overdrive platform fee, materials budget, and the purchase of records.

Applications OverDrive and Libby allow library users to browse, borrow, and place holds on electronics materials shared by public libraries in the state of Iowa. The Fairfield Public Libraray encourages using Libby, as OverDrivethe Bridges legacy appy, will be discontinued in early 2023.
