Customers are able to borrow iPad minis for free for three weeks! Adult customers have been able to borrow iPad minis at the price of $5 per 3 weeks for a couple of years now – but from 15 August, the iPads have become free to borrow. So you now can take the opportunity to get connected with family and friends, read the most recent eBooks and eAudio (Libby and Borrowbox) and magazines (RBdigital), or update your computer skills with any one of the thousands of courses available (Lynda.com).
Tablets are able to be borrowed at the following libraries : Miramar, Ruth Gotlieb (Kilbirnie), Newtown, Island Bay, Mervyn Kemp (Tawa), Johnsonville, Khandallah and Karori.
Please make a booking if you would like a free introduction to the library’s eResources, and a staff member will contact you to confirm your tablet pickup time. Alternatively, ask one of our staff at the libraries above about borrowing a tablet, and if a tablet is available you will be able to borrow it immediately.
(Please note: tablets cannot be renewed and must be returned to the issuing branch.)
