This is a difficult question to answer, as there are periods in the year when equipment is booked solid, and other occasions when it's readily available.

It's always best to try to plan ahead, and you can book up to 2 months in advance, so the quicker you can get your booking in, it is more likely that there will be equipment available for you to book. 

You must always book equipment online before collecting it from Laban Library's front desk - if you haven't reserved it, Library staff won't book it for you - they will ask you to log into the booking system to place the booking.
