Gadgets: Macbooks and Netbooks

Macbooks, Dell Ultrabooks, and Peripherals

Laptops are available on a "first come first served" basis at the library services desk (due to high demand, laptops are not available for advance requests or extended loans). Laptop accessories (External Optical Drives, Peripheral Cables) are available from the library services desk or by request through the "request a gadget" link.

Library Laptops should not be left unattended.

Renewals may be permitted at the library service desk based on current demand and availability.

Overdue laptops may be subject to fines.  During periods of high usage, overdue fines may be assessed at the rate of 1.00 for every hour that the item is overdue (up to 25.00).  By borrowing a laptop, you agree to accept full financial responsibility for the device, which may include fines, fees, repairs, and/or replacement costs ($1400.00 or current retail price plus a $35.00 processing fee).
