How do I return an e-book or e-audiobook

How do I renew an e-book or e-audiobook?

Why can't I find the title or author I want?

  • Unfortunately, not all books and audiobooks are available electronically. In addition, some publishers have decided not to make their e-titles available to libraries. In any case, if you don't see the title you want at Bridges make a purchase request; we'll see if it's available for purchase and let you know if we decide to add it to Bridges.
