Apps & iPads

Loan an iPad

We have two iPads for staff and students to borrow. You can use the iPad in the library or take it home for up to seven days. 


Our iPads come pre-installed with iOS 8 and a range of apps.


To borrow an iPad you must be a registered library user and you will need to complete a loan agreement form.


The iPads can be returned to the library during staffed hours only. In the event of non-return, you will be charged for complete replacement at a cost of £457.00 plus VAT. Other charges for broken, lost and damaged parts also apply. A late return fee of £5 per day will apply if the iPad isn’t returned by the correct date.
