In accommodation to Suffolk County library patrons, The West Babylon Public Library will lend out digital devices and equipment to library patrons aged 18 years and older. A valid West Babylon Public Library card with no outstanding fines and no lost or billed items is required and all borrowing patrons must sign the borrowing agreement. A maximum of 2 items per library card may be borrowed at a time.
- Borrowed digital devices or equipment must be returned directly to Circulation desk. Items may NOT be returned to the library drop box nor to any library other than the West Babylon Public Library.
- Overdue laptops will be deactivated within 24 hours of the due date. You will be instructed to return the device to the library.
- Storage media that complement any device must be cleared of any content you have created before returning the equipment. The West Babylon Public Library and its employees will not be deemed responsible for any material remaining on any devices.
- All user files must be saved to a cloud storage account or to a removable data storage device. All downloaded files will be cleared at the end of a browsing session.
- Patrons borrowing wifi hotspots or laptops agree to use the Internet for lawful purposes only; to refrain from viewing pornographic or obscene material; to refrain from engaging in maliciously offensive, libelous or slanderous activity; and to refrain from violating copyright laws or software licensing agreements.
- A wifi connection is required to use a streaming device. Since content is streamed over the Internet, the device will not function without an Internet connection. The Library is not responsible for any costs incurred while borrowers use the equipment.
- Each streaming device is preloaded with selected accounts and content, in accordance with Library collection policies. Borrowers may not download or delete any titles, accounts, or content from streaming devices. Patrons may not attempt to log-out of the Library’s account and into their own account on the streaming device.
- The late fee for digital devices and equipment is $10 per day. If the item is not returned within 7 days after the due date, the patron will be fined full replacement charges for the item and all accompanying materials (see table for details). Internet service to wifi hotspots will be turned off if not returned by the due date. Items are not renewable.
- As with all library materials, once you have checked out Library-owned digital devices or equipment, you are responsible for the care of it and any supplemental materials included in the kit. If any of the Library’s property is lost or damaged, it will be your responsibility to provide the cost of a repair or replacement.
- Patrons will be assessed a $10 cleaning fee for any devices or equipment that are returned and not completely clean or cleared of content, if applicable.
