The Indiana State Library is proud to offer kits to help libraries determine if they should invest in new technology, robots or a Virtual Reality program. Kits can remain at your library for a period of up to 30 days so you can test the various components and determine what would be a good fit for your library. The kits can also be used with patrons.

Contact your Regional Coordinator for more information.
