Tech Lending Collection

laptop and device

We have technology you can borrow and take home or use in the library. Customers accept full responsibility for the technology and accessories they borrow, including damage, misuse, or loss. When it's time to return the item, please return the technology in person to a staff member to avoid accidental damage, not in a drop box or return slot.

When you return the device, staff will check it for damage and make sure it's in good working condition. Once returned, devices are wiped clean or refreshed, if applicable, to protect your privacy. Any documents stored on devices while in use will be erased.

We expect all library users to use the Internet responsibly and comply with BPL's Technology Use Policy.
