Spring Giveaways Opens Today!
Opens Friday, June 3rd  - Closes  Sunday, July 31st, 2016       

It is time for spring cleaning. Each spring the Loan Library inventory is examined closely to ensure that it is up-to-date and supported by the manufacturer. Keeping the Loan Library inventory current is essential in providing you with state-of-the-art technology that you can borrow for your AT trials and can be purchased by school based teams.  As a result, we provide our loan library patrons an opportunity to participate in the Spring Giveaways. Here is how it works: 

All items in this  category,  once checked out as a Giveaway, will be transferred to you permanently.  There is a l imit  of 2 items per person.
  • Items have been assigned to the Giveaway category because either they are no longer being produced, sold, manufactured, or they use a legacy connector that is no longer common (Serial, 9-pin, PS2, etc.).
  • Some items may require  purchase  of replacement parts, such as batteries (i.e. Dynavox M3, etc.). Items do not come with warranty or service of any type.
  • Giveaways MUST be a SEPARATE ORDER from other store items in inventory, Please do not add Giveaways to an order with any other inventory kit items.
  • Currently, you can see that there is a GiveAway category on the Loan Library webpage. On June 2nd at 10 pm (EDT) you will not see the GiveAway Category listed on the website. This provides us time to set up the available items.The  Giveaway category will be available at 10 a.m. (EDT) on Friday, June 3rd. Once the giveaway category is opened on the AT & UDL Loan Library  (  https://www.at-udl.net/  )  you will see it listed under Categories on the Loan library website. On Sunday, July 31st at 10 a.m. (EDT) the Giveaway category will be closed and no longer be visible.
