Each iPad includes various educational and entertainment apps for a range of ages.

  • The borrower must have read and agreed to the iPad Lending Policy in its entirety.
  • Only one iPad per person can be checked out in the library at a time. A user may not check out an iPad for another person unless that user is a parent or guardian checking out an iPad for supervised use with their child/ren under the age of 10.
