Equipment we have that you can borrow
We have a Kindle Touch, Nook Color, and a Kobo eBook reader, as well a Sansa Fuze MP3 player and an iPod to try out downloadable audiobooks, a Kill a watt that lets you find out how much electricity your appliances are using, and a VCR/DVD player.  Most are set at the same 3 week loan period you get for most of our other materials.  We have two laptops, a chromebook, an iPad, and a SmartBoard (coming soon!) that you can use IN THE LIBRARY, with a library card.
