Access for All

Chromebook & Hotspot Borrowing

Our world has become increasingly dependent on internet. A lot of documents and tasks can be completed on your smart device, but sometimes you really just need a laptop!

With your library card you can check out a chromebook for at-home use! Need internet? We have hotspots available for checkout as well. This program is intended to help bridge the access gap for those who do not have sufficient access to Internet at home. It is not intended for recreational use.

  • Two week check out period
  • One renewal

✅ Filing Taxes

✅ Filing Government Forms

✅ Creating flyers/marketing materials for a personal business

✅ Accessing Learning Express Library (GED, ACT, SAT, GACE test prep & more!!!)

✅ Typing a document

The equipment and services funded by the federal Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) can only be provided to patrons who declare they do not have access to the equipment or services sufficient to access the internet.

Be prepared to fill out a separate form, and make sure you have your library card ready!
