Borrow an iPod Touch or an iPad
If you don't have a mobile device or want to try an app before loading it on your device, borrow a device from the library. Both the iPod Touch and the iPad are pre-loaded with library apps like OverDrive, Axis360, RBdigital, and LinkedIn Learning. When the device is returned it is reset and all personal data is removed.
Checkout an iPod Touch or an iPad from the Tech Center Desk and we can help you download digital items of your choice to our device.
The iPod Touch and iPad are checked out for 3 weeks.
