iPad Lending Prgram

RiverMills Center Tablet Lending Program now has more tablets available for lending. If you are a Chicopee senior with internet access who needs an updated device, or if you are thinking of buying a new tablet but are not sure what to get. You can borrow one of our iPads for up to 3 weeks! These tablets can be used to get online, play games, or join Zoom programming. The tablets will also have charging and typing accessories, as well as a user's guide.

If you are a Chicopee senior who could use a tablet please contact Program Technician Jona Ruiz at 534-3698 ext.104 or send an email to jruiz@chicopeema.gov.
