The Youth Services Department is very excited to announce that we now have four iPads for children to use while they are visiting the Library. Purchase of the iPads was made possible through a grant the Library Foundation received from the Scott County Regional Authority. The iPads are for use by children under the age of 12 who are under the supervision of an adult. Library patrons who are at least 18 years of age may check out an iPad for a child from the Youth Services Desk for up to one hour. To check out an iPad, a patron must submit their own current Library card and a valid driver’s license or state issued ID. See the complete iPad Checkout Policy and User Agreement at http://bettendorflibrary.com/images/stories/youth_images/ipad checkout agreement.pdf
A variety of applications have been installed and we will continue to add more once we identify our audience and find suitable applications.
Thanks to the Scott County Regional Authority and the Bettendorf Public Library Foundation for helping us offer such a great service!
