Tech to Go: Stuff You Can Check Out

Laptops

The Library has twenty-one Dell laptops running Windows 7. These are available for 6-hour checkout (yes, we have power cords) for use within the Library. See our laptop policy page for more information.

iPads

Why? Because they're cool and you know you want to play with one. 6-hour loan period, In-library use only.

Sony Bloggie MP4 Cameras

A ridiculously easy tool for taking video footage. 7-day loan period.

Peripherals

We offer an analog-to-digital converter, which can digitize your old analog recordings and videos.

We also have headphones (3.5mm), headsets (USB), freestanding microphones (3.5mm), and USB web cams.

Finally, you can check out USB flash drives. They're not as much fun as an iPad, but can be lifesavers when you need to save scans from a non-networked machine (like our color scanner/copier).
