Device Lending Library

The Lighthouse Library now has more than 500 devices available for demonstration or loan!  

We are a partner of the State of Minnesota STAR program -- a System of Technology to Achieve Results.  We loan assistive technology devices and demonstram them; and we can access a wide variety of devices from other MN STAR partner members in the State. 


You can check out a device for up to 30 days to see if the device works for you. You can also request a demonstration of one or several devices to learn about what’s possible. Our device loans and demonstrations are free to MN residents with any kind of disability.


The Lighthouse Library includes a wide range of both mainstream and assistive technologies.  (Wondering what is assistive technology?  Click here)
