Tablets

A Tablet is small hand-held electronic device for reading eBooks, viewing eMedia, and accessing the internet. The tablet is portable, so you can use it almost wherever you are; at home, on the bus or in the park. The kit also comes with a bluetooth keyboard and wireless mouse for borrowers that prefer to use those instead of the touchscreen.

  • A tablet may be checked out for one week by any adult user (18+) with a Fairport Harbor Public Library card in good standing.
  • Tablets are available on a first-come basis and cannot be reserved in advance. Tablets must be picked up and returned to FHPL in person.
  • Borrowers must sign an Equipment Borrowing Agreement form.
