You Can Borrow a Chromebook!
We have 10 Chromebooks available for in-house use,
for up to 3 hours per day per user.
A chromebook is a special purpose laptop. It has the Chrome browser installed, so you can use it to go online and do anything that you can do in a browser. Chromebooks can not have applications installed on them, so programs you might usually find on a computer are not available such as Microsoft Word and Excel. If you have a Google account, you can use Google Docs and Google Drive. Even without a Google account, you will be able to view documents. All of your data is completely erased from the chromebook when you return it to us, so your browsing history is private and you'll get a fresh chromebook when you check one out.
