iPad Loans

iPad Air tablets are now available for 1-week loan at the Library. Ask at the front desk or place a hold.

The iPads are loaded with a variety of apps. If you have an Apple ID of your own, you are able to add apps. Any data, documents, or apps saved to the iPad during the loan period will be permanently erased during the restore process. We welcome suggestions for new apps.
