Our online platform, BRIDGES, is excited to introduce magazine checkouts for patrons. The feature will be available for a year; our staff will gauge interest and usage to determine if it should become a permanent feature of the eLibrary. So if you love magazines, check them out!
Magazines are currently available on BRIDGES as a special collection through both the OverDrive and Libby apps, and on library websites in the browser (via OverDrive Read). They have no wait lists or holds, do not count towards checkout limits, and provide readers the option to renew their selections. Readers can also download magazines on Libby for offline use. This pilot was made possible through federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. If you have questions on the Libby or OverDrive apps, contact the Library at 641-792-4108 or stop in and visit the Information Desk.
