R2AAA Tablet Loaner Program
The Region 2 Area Agency on Aging is partnering with the Adrian District Library on a smart device loaner program that provides older adults, adults with disabilities, and their caregivers the ability to check out a smart device and Wi-Fi hotspot from the library. The Smart Device Connect program also includes free technology training for the devices, provided by the R2AAA IT Help phone line. Individuals with a library card may use the devices to access the library’s digital resources.
If you are interested in participating, please call the R2AAA at 517-592-1689 to get started. Once they determine your eligibility for the program, you will be able to pick up a device at the library.
