Regular library users can log onto the computers by using their library ID and phone number. The ID can be found on the back of your library card – follow the information in Accessing Your Account. For any further assistance using the computers, please ask a the library front desk.
The library now has 2 Chromebook laptops* for checkout and use outside of the library. The Chromebooks do not have any specific software installed and run off of the Google apps that a user personally applies to a Google Account.
The Chromebooks check out like books, but require that the patron be 14 years of age or older. They check out for a 1 week period like DVDs, CDs, and video games, but have a fine of $1 per day. Also, since they are more expensive than a regular library item, $300 may be charged if the device is damaged through negligence.
Included with the device is a booklet offering some initial guidance for use.
