NEKLS Tablet Grant

Are you a NExpress library? Would you like a brand-new Android tablet for use for staff and patron training on e-content (like Hoopla and Flipster)? If the answer to any of those questions is “yes”, head on over to http://nekls.org/services/grants-and-subsidies/nekls-tablet-grant/ and find out what you need to do to get your free tablet from NEKLS!

Additional tablets can be ordered at this time, but you will be charged around $130 for each additional one you need. You also agree to do some basic things (marketing, reporting on stats over the course of 6 months, etc.) in return for this tablet, but you also get some training with it, so we feel it’s a net win for you! Contact Robin at rhastings@nekls.org if you have any questions!
