The Almonte, Capitol Hill, Ralph Ellison, and Southern Oaks Libraries each have a MediaSurfer, an "iPad vending machine" that allows you to check out an iPad, using your library card, for 2 hours of in-library use. The iPads come preloaded with basic apps, games, and educational software. They can be checked out for up to 2 hours, and if turned in late, accrue late fees of $5 per hour (up to a maximum of $60).
