Borrow Electronics

Borrow Equipment from Avon Lake Public Library

We have new ways to access media, yours and ours, new and old. Most items circulate for seven (7) days (some for 21 days, as indicated) and all are subject to a $1/day overdue fine.

All equipment can be checked out unless stated otherwise. Return items to the desk you borrowed them from so staff can check them over. Holds may be placed on equipment through our online catalog.

You must be 18 or older, show photo ID with current address at time of checkout, and sign an agreement to borrow equipment.

Renewals or extended loans cannot be made online, but can be made by Library staff at their discretion. Partially damaged equipment or equipment returned with parts missing will be billed at Library discretion.
