Laptop Checkout

The Mary and Jeff Bell Library is pleased to announce the arrival of our new laptop checkout kiosks! 
Twenty-four laptops purchased by CASA Title V Project GRAD are available for checkout in the library. 
Students can checkout laptops during library hours for in house use, three hours at a time. There are two kiosks, one on each floor of the library.  The first floor kiosk is located to the left of the library entrance, by the copy machine.  The second floor kiosk is located along the wall outside of the GROW suite. You will need to log into the kiosk with your Islander ID and password in order to checkout a laptop.
Laptop checkout is only available to registered students.
