Introducing the Qual Family Resource Library

The Qual Family Resource Library at LIFE Mower County is a collection of technology items that are available for check out at no cost to our participants for a designated period. Through the generosity of funds we have received from the Qual Family Endowment Fund, we have purchased Google Chromebooks to start our library.  By utilizing our Google Chromebooks at home, individuals will have continued recreational opportunities to build upon social interaction, creativity, and educational experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.

You may check out a Chromebook for up to four weeks, and checkouts are limited only to LIFE Mower County participants. Resource Library items are on a first-come, first-serve basis, and you may not place the items on hold.  An Equipment Use Agreement must be reviewed and signed before the disbursement of items.  Learn more at https://www.lifemowercounty.org/qual-family-resource-library.
