Equipment Borrowing

Most equipment - except where noted - can be checked out for 21 days by anyone with a valid library account. Children under age 16 must have a parent's or guardian's signature. Overdue fees are $1 a day, and patrons will be charged for missing pieces or parts. Instructions and, in some cases, product guides and ideas are included. Some of the equipment requires software to be downloaded on a home computer.

Library customers can place holds on equipment just like any library item through the online Catalog or by calling the Help Desk at (920) 322-3929. The kits are kept at the Main Library downtown but can be shipped for pickup at any library location.
