You can check out a PC laptop or Chromebook at the Check-Out & Reserves Desk. Here's what you should know:

  • You can use the laptop anywhere in the library building - this includes spaces like the Lake Effect Café and the Writing Center. However, our laptops are not permitted outside of the building.

  • You can check-out laptops for 3 hours at a time. If no one is waiting for a laptop, you can renew it.

Desktop computers

Most of our desktop computers are located on the first floor, in the following spaces:

  • 24/7 Computer Lab - we have a dedicated computer lab area, which is part of the 24-Hour Room. This space has both PC & Mac desktop computers.

    If you need access to the lab after the library has closed, make sure to bring your ID so you can get into the lab.

  • Main Lobby Area - we have several PCs available in the main lobby area of the first floor.
