BRIDGES (formerly known as NEIBORS) has a catalog of hundreds of audiobooks and E-books in various formats. 

***Due to a change at the state level, this will only work for you with an Evansdale Public Library card IF you are a resident of Evansdale, Elk Run Heights or Gilbertville. If you use the library but reside in another city or town, you will need to use your city's library card in order to access the NEIBORS catalog.
