Mobile Device Discovery Kits

Library Director Marie Downes is pleased to receive the Mobile Devices KitBeginning January 2014, public libraries have the opportunity to apply to borrow a new updated Mobile Device Discovery Kit through a program sponsored by the State Library.

Each kit includes 3 iPads, and one each of the following: iPad mini, Barnes & Noble Nook Color Tablet, Kindle Fire, Kindle Paperwhite, Samsung Galaxy Tablet, Samsung Galaxy Note, Google Nexus 7 and a Microsoft Surface Tablet. Each kit is on loan for 2 months. The borrowing library is responsible for pick-up and drop-off in person of the kit from the location selected on the Mobile Device Discovery Kit application (the NJ State Library in Trenton or LibraryLinkNJ, the Statewide Library Cooperative, in Piscataway).

Any public library that is interested in borrowing one of these kits, for use by the staff in the library only, must first fill out a Mobile Device Discovery Kit Application and submit it to the State Library.

Please contact Jennifer Podolsky, jpodolsky@njstatelib.org, 609-278-2640 ext. 135 if you have any questions.
