Bits ‘N Bytes to Borrow

SWFLN has a selection of items, as shown below, available for loan to SWFLN Institutional member libraries.

Most items can be borrowed for two weeks. Members are responsible for picking up and returning equipment to the SWFLN office in person during SWFLN’s normal business hours. Members are also responsible for the replacement cost should the borrowed item become non-functional. Please Note: SWFLN staff are not experts on each item below. SWFLN staff will provide basic operational instructions. It is the Borrower’s duty to independently become familiar with the item to be borrowed and figure out how to incorporate the item into the planned programming.

To request an item, please click on the link to request it and fill out the online form. Please use your work email, NOT your personal email, to help us confirm your affiliation. When the item is available for check-out, you will receive an email from SWFLN indicating that it has been reserved and is awaiting your pickup. Please allow ten to fifteen (10 – 15) minutes at the time of pick up and at the time of return to fully review the items and the Check Out/Borrowing Agreement.

 

Please be sure to return the items in the same condition as you borrowed them.  For example, the Lego Mindstorms Education Sets need to be returned disassembled, which is the same way they are checked out to you.
