eBook & Audio


This free service provides access to Bridges-OverDrive Digital Library and allows patrons of the member libraries to download audiobooks and eBooks to their home computers, tablets, smart phones, e-readers or iPads.

Bridges Ebook and Audiobook Updates (9/15/2021)

We now have shorter wait times and more titles available in our digital collection through Bridges and the Libby app. Help us grow this collection by requesting a new title at the Library. This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) as administered by the State Library of Iowa.


Our membership in this consortium allows Solon Public Library patrons who live in Solon and rural Johnson County to access this service. If you live outside these areas, please ask your local library if they provide access.

To check out and download eBooks and audiobooks, you will need:

  • Valid Solon Public Library card and password (Use the same password you set up for your card through the library catalog.)
