Laptops now available for library checkout – Daily Leader

Laptop computers are now available for patrons at the Lincoln County Public Library.

The pilot program is funded by the Emergency Connectivity Fund, used to help libraries and schools provide the tools and services their communities need for remote learning during the time of COVID-19.

“Unfortunately, the library is not physically open 24/7, so there may be times when patrons need access to computers, and they just can’t get it,” said said Lincoln County Librarian Kasie Beth Brown. “We hope that the laptop loan program will provide members of our community with the opportunity to achieve their personal goals by giving them access to the technology they need on their schedule, not just that of the library. Additionally, we would like to remind everyone that access to the library’s public Wi-Fi is available from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Laptop borrowing is available to patrons who are registered for full library privileges. A deposit may be requested. Customers should expect to spend 20-30 minutes reading the guidelines, frequently asked questions, and loan agreement before using the program for the first time.

Laptops can be borrowed for up to 15 working days and must be returned in person to the same location from which they were borrowed, during library opening hours. They cannot be deposited in drop boxes.

Each laptop includes useful resources – major search engines, Microsoft Office products, Zoom, Skype, etc.
