What Is A Laptop Checkout?

Lexington Public Library now lends laptop computers to patrons 18 and over (all you need is a library card).

  • Your laptop checks out for 14 days, and will automatically renew itself if there are no holds.
  • If you have email notices set up, you’ll get an email if there is a hold on it and it can’t be renewed.
  • Press the power button to power up the laptop. It will automatically log itself in.
  • If WiFi is available, the computer will automatically connect to it. If the WiFi has a password, you’ll need to type it in before the WiFi will connect.
    • You can access the internet with your own WiFi connection, either at home or using a public WiFi signal, like the Library’s.
  • To access the programs included on the laptop,click on the Start Menu.
  • The laptops have virus protection included.
  • All user data will be erased when the laptop is returned, so your privacy is protected.
