St. Joseph County Library offering iPad and laptop rentals


Forget a can of pop or a bag of skittles!

You can now get a laptop or an iPad from these brand new vending machines at the St. Joseph County Library's main branch in downtown South Bend.

The new machines arrived on Monday.

You simply need to scan your library card to check out a device for three hours.

The folks at the library say it's a convenient way to offer access to technology.

Sarah Hill with the St. Joe County Library says, "You can read a book on an iPad, you can read a book on a laptop. You could fill out your taxes, you could do a lot of things!"

If you haven't been to the main library lately, you should check it out. You could even check out an iPad, then take a seat in the cafe, order something to drink and read!
