Guidelines For Circulating Electronic Devices

  1. CHECK OUT = 2 weeks
  2. RENEW = as long as there are no holds
  3. HOLDS = yes
  4. OVERDUE = $1.00/day; overdue hotspots have service deactivated
  5. RESTRICTIONS = valid library card (in good standing; not LIMITED card)
  6. ADDITIONAL FEES = $10 if returned in drop box; $75 replacement fee for hotspots and $500 replacement fee for tablets

Tablets (with hotspots) circulate in a carrying case. All charging and connector cables are included. Each carrying case will have a list of items included and should be double-checked at both check out and check in. There will also be an instruction sheet in each case.

Hotspots that circulate separately from a tablet are in a smaller case with a charging cable included. There will be an item list and instruction sheet included.

Neither the tablet nor hotspot should be returned in the outside book drop.

Both the tablet and hotspot cases have the MRL logo to identify them as belonging to MRL.
