Tablets provide access to apps and also function as a hotspot.

You can connect up to three devices to free Wi-Fi. Tablets may only be borrowed by users ages 10 through 19, and users may borrow one device per account.

Tablets can be picked up at any of our Sidewalk Service locations.

Instructions will be provided with each device. Need help? Download a user manual PDF, or read more about enabling a hotspot and clearing browsing history.

Returning a Tablet

All devices are borrowed for three weeks and can be renewed up to three times as long as there are no holds. Data will be turned off on overdue devices.

Devices must be returned in person and may be returned to any Pratt Library branch. Please make a Sidewalk Service appointment to return the device.

Lost tablets cost $100. Once returned, fees will be removed for long overdue devices. Damaged devices and missing parts will be charged accordingly. Missing or damaged USB cables and adapters cost $8 each.

The library is not responsible for data uploaded or downloaded to the tablets. All data will be cleared from the tablet upon return.
