Library Response to COVID-19

COVID-19 Update

We are offering a very limited pool of equipment for circulation during the COVID pandemic. See the Equipment Available to Borrow section for more information.

How Does Borrowing Equipment Work?

Equipment will need to be booked 24 hours in advance via the Equipment Booking form. All equipment must be picked up from the Davis Family Library.  You may not request or borrow equipment in person. We will check out the booked equipment and have it ready for you to pick up at a time you specify in the form.

Booking Equipment

All equipment can be booked in advance by students, faculty, and staff. To book equipment online, fill out the Equipment Booking form. To adjust or cancel a booking, please contact the Davis Family Library Circulation Desk at (802) 443-5494 or email library_circulation@middlebury.edu.
