Due to licensing restrictions, our BRIDGES service for downloadable eBooks & Audiobooks is now limited to residents of Marshalltown, rural Marshall County, and cities that contract with us for library services (Haverhill and Ferguson). Library privileges must be current and there is a $10 fine limit in order to use this service.
Starting this year, our system will automatically allow or deny access to BRIDGES based on our record of your current residence. We regret limiting our download service, but we must comply with our contract. Our other services are not impacted by this change.
If you are not eligible to use BRIDGES through the Marshalltown Public Library anymore, we encourage you to contact your town’s library. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
