Patrons who would like to try the technology before committing to purchasing one of their own are welcome to borrow the library C-Pen and take it home to explore the functionalities. It is user-friendly and comes with instructions for use.

The C-Pen is currently located at the Margaret River Library but is also available for Augusta members to borrow – just ask your friendly library staff to assist if you would like to borrow it.
