Multi Media Projector Policy

Policy regarding the conditions associated with checking out the Multi Media Projector.

Policy for Use of Multi Media Projector

The use of the Multi Media projector is governed by the Readlyn Community Library.
Guidelines for borrowing the equipment are as follows:

  • The Multi Media projector will be housed at the Readlyn Community Library.

  • It may be borrowed by any Readlyn (city or rural) resident, 21 years of age or older, for use in the Readlyn Community Library or within the community.
  • The equipment may be reserved in advance through the Readlyn Community Library, and must be picked up and returned during the library’s hours of operation.
  • There is a $5.00 charge to use the equipment, and a deposit of $100 will be required. The deposit will be returned to the borrower when the equipment has been checked and found to be in good working order.
  • Individuals using the projector must provide their own laptop or desktop computer.

  • The Library Staff will provide instruction for the use of equipment, but will not be present to operate it for meetings and programs. Arrangement for this instruction must be made no later than one week in advance of the meeting date.
  • The projector has to be allowed to complete its cool-down cycle before being unplugged to prevent undue stress on the projector lamp causing the lamp to blow out or have a drastically reduced life. Lamps cost about $500 each to replace. After completing your presentation, allow the fan to cool down the LCD for a minimum of five minutes.
  • Any malfunction or difficulty encountered in the use of the equipment must be reported to the library staff immediately.
  • A signature must be provided upon checkout. This signature will specify that the person checking out the equipment assumes full responsibility for its safe return in good working order. Check out period must not exceed three days. There will be a $10 per day late fee.

I have read the above policy and agree to its terms. I assume full responsibility for the projector’s return in good working order. I understand that if any damage occurs to the projector while in my possession, I am liable to pay for repairs or replacement.
