Since earlier this year, adult customers have been able to borrow iPad minis for 3 weeks from the Second Floor desk at the Central Library. They are now also available at the following branch libraries: Miramar, Ruth Gotlieb (Kilbirnie), Newtown, Island Bay, Mervyn Kemp (Tawa), Johnsonville and Cummings Park (Ngaio)!
These tablets are perfect if you would like to become more familiar with the library’s eResources such as free eBooks (Overdrive), newspapers (PressReader), magazines (RBdigital), and other online resources. Loans are $5, and community card discounts apply. Tablets are reset between each customer.
Please make a booking if you would like an 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 for more information on the service, they’ll be happy to tell you more.
