Borrow an iPad

From Thursday 28 July we are piloting a new free iPad Lending Scheme at Southwater Library. It is aimed at those who do not currently have access to a device and is open to anyone over 16 years of age who has a Telford & Wrekin library card. It doesn't matter how much experience you have with iPads already.

The iPads can be loaned for a 4-week period, and they are data-enabled which means you do not need to have an internet connection at home. There is a simple step-by-step tutorial already on each device to get you started, along with other information you may find helpful.

How do I borrow an iPad?

Borrowing an iPad is free. All you need to do is visit Southwater Library with your library card and official proof of name and address e.g. driving licence, utility bill etc. Our team will confirm your contact details with you and ask you to sign a copy of the terms and conditions for the iPad Lending Scheme.
Please note all devices are managed remotely by Telford & Wrekin and can be securely locked or disabled if required.

If you don’t have a library card it is easy to join the library.

Additional support

Should you need additional support you can get one to one help at Southwater Library on:

  • Tuesdays 10am - 12pm (noon)
  • Thursdays 2pm - 4pm.


When you borrow an iPad you will be able to set your own passcode for extra security while you are using it. When the device is returned it will be electronically wiped so that the code is removed and any personal data. Please note if you are still using the device and forget your code staff are unable to unlock the device without electronically wiping it. You would also need to show your proof of name and address again.
