Technology - iPad Checkout Policy and Agreement





Any patron with a Belgrade Community Library (or BridgerNet) card in good standing (not expired and fines not exceeding $10.00) may check out an iPad using a current photo ID and library card matching the name on the ID (the ID and library card will be held at the circulation desk while the iPad is checked out). It will be scanned and checked out to your library card account as well.

iPad use is restricted to the main floor of the Library.  iPads may not be taken into the restrooms.  iPads may be checked out for two consecutive hours. iPads may not be renewed.

iPads are available during Library open hours.  iPads should be returned to the public services desk fifteen minutes before the library closes.   iPads cannot be borrowed within 30 minutes of closing time. 

A signed Library iPad/Tablet Loan Agreement must be on file at the circulation desk or filled out below.  The borrower who checks out the iPad is responsible for damage until the iPad is returned to the circulation desk. 

Patrons may not leave the iPad unattended. If patrons must exit the Library while the iPad is checked out to them, the iPad must be left with a Library staff member at the public services desk. The Library is not responsible for any lost files, nor will any files be saved on the hard drive.

iPads must be returned to a Library staff member and not just left on the counter when returned.  Technical problems or equipment malfunctions should be reported to Library staff.

    • I understand that the circulation period is two hours or less, depending on the time the tablet is checked out.

    • I will not download or copy software to the tablet, nor deliberately attempt to modify the tablet in any harmful or malicious way.
