An array of phones & tablets getting charged.It's been a long, busy day. You come to the Library to grab some books, use the internet, hang for a bit. Only you notice that your phone is almost dead... and the panic sets in! How will you respond to that text? Call for a pickup ride?  Let your friends know you're running late? What will you do?!?!?!

Don't panic. The Library has got your back. 

Just head on down to the front Circulation Desk and ask for one of our charger cords to use while you're at the Library. With your library card, you can check out one of six Micro USB Cable Chargers (compatible with Android devices) or one of six Lightning Cable Chargers (compatible with iOS devices). 

Then just find an outlet or one of our table charging stations in the Library, plug in, and watch that battery icon turn green again. Whew! Crisis averted.  Now smile for that Instagram post!

(Limit one per card; in-house use only; no renewals; $1.00 a day overdue fines)
