Long-Term Loan – SUPER Postings

The Simon Technology Center is pleased to announce the Long-Term Loan Program for individuals looking to borrow an assistive technology device for more than a four week period.  The borrowed device can serve as a loaner during a device repair or to provide an accommodation on a long-term basis.  A membership to the STC Lending Library is required and you must renew the item every three months in order to verify the condition of the device.  The loan period is open-ended and is dependent on the individual’s needs.  The Long-Term Loan Program only includes a select amount of devices.  The STC adds devices to the program as they see fit.  For more information, please call 952-838-9000 or email
