TEENS: CHECK OUT AN iPAD!

Thanks to a Best Buy grant, we have six 4th generation iPad 2s (loaded with great apps) available for check-out to North Riverside residents ages 12 through 17.

To check-out an iPad for in-library or home use:
• Come into the library with your parent or legal guardian and ask the Circulation Desk staff for an iPad User Agreement form.
o Both you and your parent will need ID and your NRPL library cards.
o Both of you must read and sign the form. Your parent’s signature acknowledges that he/she will be responsible for any damage or loss. Your signature means that you understand how to use an iPad and will use it carefully and responsibly.

• iPads may be checked out for two weeks, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

• If you attended last summer’s Teen iPad Workshops, you may reserve an iPad up to 48 hours in advance, and your check-out period is three weeks, rather than two. You will still need your parent/guardian sign a User Agreement form.

Teen Read Week October 12 – 18: Turn Dreams Into Reality!

Residents ages 12 – 18 who check out a book can enter our drawing for new paperbacks (provided by the Friends of the North Riverside Public Library). Winners will be notified by October 2
