Mobile Device Borrowing Policy
Mobile devices may be checked out to customers 18 years of age or older with a valid driver’s license or State issued photo ID and an Anderson Public Library card without fees or overdue items.
Customers eligible to check out a mobile device may check out one (1) device at a time.
Fees and Liability
The customer is responsible for ensuring that the mobile device is in working order and without physical damage when it is checked out.
Overdue fees of $5 per day, up to a maximum of $50, will be assessed for each day a mobile device is returned late.
If, for any reason, a library-owned mobile device is not returned or paid for within 14 days of the due date:
· The borrowing customer’s account will be turned over to a collection agency,
· The mobile device may be locked remotely and information may be wiped from the device,
· And the police will be contacted to collect the device.
Mobile devices must be returned in the condition in which they were borrowed with all cords and accessories. If a mobile device and/or any of the accessories are lost, stolen, or returned damaged the customer will be charged a replacement or repair fee (up to the full retail price of the item) plus a $10 non-refundable processing fee for those items.
Mobile devices should be returned to a staff member at Circulation. Mobile devices may not be returned in the drop box. If a mobile device is returned in the drop box, the customer’s account will be billed $25, and if any of the items are found to be damaged, the customer’s account will also be charged for each damaged item, up to the full retail price of the device and accessories plus a $10 non-refundable processing fee.
Any apps, eBooks, music, videos, software, or other media purchased by the customer for the mobile device will not be reimbursed by the library and will be deleted upon reboot or return of the device.
The library is not responsible for damage to any removable drive or storage device (i.e. CD/DVD, flash drive, memory card) or loss of data that may occur due to improper use of the mobile device or in the event of malfunctioning hardware or software.
