San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) and the City of San Antonio’s Department of Human Services (DHS) are piloting a new free device lending program aimed at improving digital literacy and fostering connection.

The Device Lending Program for Older Adults will allow Bexar County residents ages 60 years or older to check out a free iPad from one of five DHS-managed senior centers throughout the city. Borrowers can keep the device at home for up to six months to help them connect with friends and family, browse the internet, connect with a health care provider, engage in leisure activities, and use mobile apps.

A personal internet connection is not required as the devices will come with a free wireless cellular connection to access the internet.

“San Antonio Public Library is committed to bridging the digital divide for everyone in San Antonio,” said Ramiro S. Salazar, Director, San Antonio Public Library. “This program underscores the Library’s dedication to equipping older adults not only with vital 21st century resources, but also to services that connect them with friends, family, and loved ones in new and meaningful ways.”

Among the many benefits of using a digital device, borrowers will be able to access millions of digital resources available through SAPL including eBooks, eAudiobooks, music, movies, and online databases.

For more information, call 210-207-2500 or chat with library staff at ask.mysapl.org. For information on other library programs and services, visit mysapl.org.

Devices will be available for check-out beginning October 5 from these DHS senior centers:

  • Normoyle Senior Center, 700 Culberson, 78211
  • West End Park Senior Center, 1226 N.W. 18th St., 78207
  • District 2 Senior Center, 1751 S. W.W. White Road, 78220
  • Southside Lions Senior Center, 3303 Pecan Valley Drive, 78210
  • District 5 Senior Center, 2701 S. Presa, 78210

A San Antonio Public Library card is required to check out a device, and SAPL staff can help those interested in the program sign up for a free library account. Anyone who borrows an iPad will have access to free tech support and training opportunities from program partners AARP Senior Planet, OATS and OASIS to help users get the most out of their borrowed device.
