The library loans the cassette playback machine free of
charge to its patrons. There are two types of cassette playback
machines: the easy machine, or E1, and the standard machine, or
C1. A reader advisor can help you decide which machine will best
meet your needs.
Please keep the carton and packing material in which your machine arrives.
The packaging will be needed to return the machine for repair or if you
cancel your service. You may keep your machine until it either needs to be
replaced or you cancel your service.
When you cancel your service, it is necessary to return the cassette machine
and other materials on loan to you from the library. These may be returned in
person or through the mail, postage-free. CTBL will send empty boxes and packing
material for this purpose upon request. You may also take the machine to your
local library and have them send it back to CTBL through the courier.
CTBL does not deliver or pick up equipment. The Postal Service performs this function.
Patrons must order at least one book a year or receive one direct mail magazine
in order to continue to borrow NLS cassette machines. This does not include receiving
books, magazines or other materials from sources other than those provided by NLS and
its network libraries. If the cassette machine is not being used in conjunction with
reading materials provided as outlined above, it must be returned.
