With powerful, intuitive, and secure devices, Apple® is the perfect platform for libraries to inspire and support their communities in new ways.

Apple® devices are easy for libraries to set up and maintain and even easier for their patrons to use. They're perfect for building resumes, searching for jobs, creating content and learning languages. Best-in-class security keeps patrons safe and their data private. And that's even before considering the hundreds of thousands of apps available in the App Store. With apps for creativity, learning, and collaboration, Apple devices can meet nearly any need your community has.

Incredible value.

With fewer support tickets, less software needed, and higher residual value, the Mac® savings add up. Compared with a PC, a single Mac can save you $843 over three years.1 Learn more by reading the Forrester TEI report.

Great for multi-generational users.

Apple products have accessibility features at their core. With accessibility at heart of our user experience, Apple products are a great choice to cater to multi-generational users.

Help patrons unleash their creativity.

The App Store offers more than 75,000 educational apps designed especially for iPad® that cover a wide range of subjects for every grade level and learning style.

Apple devices are great for libraries and patrons.

In addition to the reasons outlined to the left, Apple devices are great for libraries and patrons.

  • Communicate with multiple languages. Apple’s Translate app for iPhone® and iPad supports up to 11 languages.
  • Accessible for everyone. Patrons with vision, hearing, mobility, and learning differences can use integrated accessibility features to help Apple devices work the way they do. Features like magnifier, VoiceOver, Braille, and spoken content ensure all patrons can get what they need.

Secure by Design.

Security and privacy are built into the hardware and software of Apple devices. Our approach to the security architecture helps ensure that personal data remains private and allows libraries to manage their data with confidence.

Easy to manage and deploy.

Apple devices support a modern deployment and management model, with streamlined wireless setup using mobile device management (MDM). MDM allows libraries to remotely enforce standards and perform routine maintenance without user interaction or physical access to the device.

With MDM, libraries can also control content viewed by patrons and wipe or decommission a device that’s been lost of stolen.

What is MDM?
