Device Lending

WNYLRC has purchased various gadgets/equipment for our members to borrow and try out. This could be a way for you to "try before you buy," where you can borrow and test the item before deciding if you want to buy it for your library. It could also be a way to borrow single devices for short-term projects. To borrow any of these devices, contact Matt Sajecki at msajecki@wnylrc.org or 716-633-0705 ext 112. You can borrow an item for 2 weeks (or longer if no one else is waiting for it) and we will ask you to sign a borrower's agreement.

See below for more info, and video demonstrations, for each device.
