Loans of digital objects

Did you know that in collaboration with the Gatineau Library (Donalda-Charron located on rue de Bruxelles), we offer people the opportunity to borrow digital objects?

The collection includes:

    • Robotics and coding kits;
    • Heat presses;
    • A digital piano;
    • A digital sewing machine;
    • Negative film and slide converters and VHS to digital format;
    • Nintendo Switch consoles;
    • A GoPro camera and its accessories;
    • And many other objects!

See the full list on the catalogue.


The collection is available only at the Donalda-Charron Library. It is possible to book online or at the counter.

Equipment must be returned to this library during business hours.

You must have a subscription with the libraries of the city of Gatineau. It's free!

Duration of the loan

Borrow one item at a time, for a period of 7 days, with the option to renew the loan for a second period of 7 days if the item has not been reserved by another person.

You must be at least 12 years old to borrow an object from this collection and sign a loan form [PDF]. 12- to 15-year-olds must ask a parent or guardian to sign.

Delay and lost items

A fee ($1/day) applies for delays. After four weeks of delay, the item that was not returned will be considered lost and the replacement costs will be charged to your file.

Broken and lost items

The loss or breakage of an instrument incurs a fee.
