Periodical Tablets

Read, Flip Through, Enjoy!

One tablet, three apps, thousands of magazines and newspapers.

How to Use:

  1. Go to the Circulation Desk at your local branch and ask to check out a tablet.

    Tablets must be checked out with a MCLS library card. We will not accept a license or other ID to borrow the tablets.

  2. Use the tablet inside the library for one hour.

    Check-out is only for one hour. Tablets can be renewed by revisiting the Circulation Desk.

  3. Bring the tablet back to the Circulation Desk when the hour is up.

    Late fees accumulate at $1.00 per day. If a tablet leaves the building, it will be disabled immediately and become unusable. If lost, the patron will be charged the full price for the device.
