Expanding Awareness of and Access to Assistive Technology Resources throughout Central PA

The Lending Library enables Pennsylvania residents of any age and with any type of disability to determine which assistive technology (AT) device or equipment best suits their needs prior to making a purchasing decision.

The Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Lending Library is a free service of the Pennsylvania Initiative on Assistive Technology, of which UCP Central PA is a designated Assistive Technology Resource Center (ATRC)

Available Inventory

The inventory of PA’s Assistive Technology Lending Library consists of AT devices which can be easily shipped, do not require installation or permanent modifications, and do not involve weight bearing.

There is a wide selection of devices available for you to borrow, including those that can help you:

  • Communicate with others
  • Control your environment
  • Hear what others are saying
  • Perform activities of daily living

Given the current economic climate, and the uncertainty regarding state funding of this program, Lending Library procedures and policies are in a state of flux. We encourage you to visit the PIAT website for the most up to date information.

How the Lending Library Works

  1. Contact the UCP Central PA AT Specialist to request an application to borrow equipment.*
  2. For onsite items, return your completed Assistive Technology Lending Library application to UCP. For offsite items, please complete Techowl's device loan request form and follow the instructions. (After your application is received, you will be informed of an approximate shipping date.)
  3. At that point, arrangements will be made for pick up or delivery of the device.
  4. When the loan period is over, the device will be picked up and returned to the Lending Library.

*Requests for devices can be made by the individual in need, a family member, friend or advocate, or another interested third party who is helping identify assistive technology needs (e.g., a therapist or physician, teacher or professor, rehabilitation counselor, nursing home transition coordinator).

UCP Staff Can Help If:

  • You don’t know what you need.
  • You need help in learning to use the device.

  • You successfully try a device and need help in acquiring it for your own use.
