We invite member public libraries to borrow display banners and "tech toys" from Parkland for use in their libraries or by library staff. Equipment is sent on your weekly van run delivery and returned to PRL Headquarters on your next weekly van run, or can be booked for up to 2 weeks for most items and up to 3 months for Victor Readers.
