BiblioTech East, BiblioTech South and BiblioTech West are open for essential services Monday-Friday from 9am to 7pm.
If you are going to visit us, please to be sure to wear a mask and follow staff guidelines for proper social distancing. We are also requesting only one person per household in the branch whenever possible, as we are down to 25 percent of our capacity.
If you would like to check out a hotspot or tablet, please call ahead to reserve the device (BiblioTech East: 210-631-0230; BiblioTech South: 210-631-0180; BiblioTech West: 210-631-0190).

Borrow a Device
What you need to know before you borrow
You must be at least 16 years old and present a photo ID to borrow a BiblioTech device. You will be asked to electronically sign our user agreement form each time you borrow a device. Parents/guardians can borrow devices for their children.
Electronic devices may be borrowed for 21 days. A grace period of 6 days is allowed before late fines will accrue. If the device is not returned by the end of the grace period, a $14 fine will be charged to the user's account. If a device is more than 30 days overdue, a replacement fee will be charged to the user's account. This will stop the patron from being able to borrow BiblioTech materials. This fee will be waived if the device is returned to the library in good working order within 3 months of the date that the device was originally borrowed.
Damages and Liability
By borrowing a device and signing our digital user agreement form, the user agrees to assume any and all legal liability for the cost of repair or replacement of a device in the event of loss due to theft, damage, negligence or misuse while the device is checked-out on his or her account. Please contact the library with any questions or concerns.
