You can use your library card number to log in to your WBPL account, access ebooks, and even watch free streaming videos!
To log in you will need your library card number and the main phone number listed on your account.
Find your library card number
Your library card number – sometimes called your “patron ID” – is located on the back of your library card next to a barcode.
The patron IDs are circled on the older and new cards below:
|Older Card||Newer Card|
If you have a old card that contains a letter in the ID number, please contact us to update your account.
If you don’t know or remember what phone number is listed on your account, you can also contact us at the library. We’re always happy to help you make the most of your account!

Visit the Bridges site at bridges.overdrive.com and sign in using the same library card number and phone number.
The Bridges system communicates directly with the library’s catalog system – if you change your phone number on your library account, your Bridges login will also change.
