DEMONSTRATION & LOAN LIBRARY
What is the Equipment Demonstration & Loan Program?
The Equipment Demonstration & Loan Program allows people with disabilities, their families, and professionals to observe and try out devices. The Equipment Loan Program lets you borrow equipment before deciding on what to purchase, to fill in when adaptive equipment is in the shop for repairs, or when waiting for delivery of ordered equipment. Items are generally on loan for 1 to 4 weeks, depending on the demand for the particular item. There is no fee to borrow this equipment. For a complete listing of items available or to speak with an assistive technology specialist concerning the availability of assistive technology equipment, please contact us today! Or visit our online inventory to see what we currently house in our library.
