Reserving Equipment

What is Equipment Reservation?

If a patron wants to complete a project on a piece of equipment that will take longer than the standard allotted time, they will need to reserve the equipment for use.

When Are Reservation Hours?

Reservation times are: Wednesday 5:00-9:00 PM, Saturday 9:00 AM-1:00 PM, Sunday 1:00-5:00 PM 

How Long Can I Reserve a Piece of Equipment?

Patrons can reserve equipment for up to 4 consecutive hours, one time per week.

Do I Have to Be Trained on the Equipment?

Yes. In order to use any piece of equipment, patrons must:
  1. Have a MidPointe Library card.
  2. Have completed and submitted an Innovation Pointe waiver.
  3. Have completed Competency or Beginner Badging training for that equipment. Must be 10 years or older.

How Do I Reserve a Piece of Equipment?

Patrons must consult with an Innovation Pointe staff member about their project. Once consultation is complete and materials are approved, staff will complete the reservation sign-up.
