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.
