Chromebooks

Chromebook dispenser at the Advanced Learning Library

Chromebooks are now available for checkout from a dispenser located in the Advanced Learning Library.

Checking Out a Chromebook

  • To check out a Chromebook, you must have a library card in good standing. E-cards cannot be used to check out a Chromebook.
  • Chromebooks can be checked out for up to 3 hours at a time, once per day. There is no charge to check out.
  • If the device is not returned to the dispenser on time, a late fee of $15 per hour will be charged.
  • The replacement charge for a lost or damaged Chromebook is $500.

Chromebooks can be used anywhere inside the Advanced Learning Library, including the terrace on the second floor. Chromebooks may not be removed from the building.

Files stored on each Chromebook are automatically deleted when the device is powered off, the session is ended, or the lid is closed. We strongly recommend using a USB flash drive or cloud storage like Google Drive, OneDrive, or Dropbox to store your files.

Printing

Chromebooks can print using the Library's MobilePrint service. Printing costs 10¢ per page and is in black and white only. Print jobs are stored for 24 hours.
