Equipment Lending & Leasing

eReader Lending

Westlock Libraries has eReaders available for borrowing as you would a library book. Our  Kobo Touch eReaders can be checked out by patrons with active library cards and must be returned to the library from which they were borrowed to prevent possible damage from shipping between libraries. Fines for loss or damage apply.
