In-house Chromebook Policy
Chromebooks are available for use at the Lebanon and Kilton libraries. The size of Chromebooks and their wi-fi capability provides maximum flexibility to library space usage while maintaining the libraries commitment to open access to the Internet.
Anyone may check out a Chromebook for in-library use. The Chromebook will be checked out to the library’s account in Koha to track usage statistics. Chromebooks must be returned to the circulation desk when the user is finished. All laptops must be returned before the library closes.
All default software settings will be restored and all created and downloaded files, cookies, Internet search history, etc. will be removed after each patron use.
Holds cannot be placed on Chromebooks. They are handed out in a first come, first served manner.
The borrower will be held responsible for any damage or theft. If the equipment is malfunctioning or the battery is low, staff should be immediately notified. Intentional damage, as determined by library staff, will subject the borrower to a charge. This charge will consist of the cost to repair or replace the device. Failure to return a Chromebook will result in a replacement fee. Abuse of the loan policy, as determined by staff, may result in suspension of borrowing privileges.
The Lebanon Public Libraries’ Internet Use Policy applies to all in-house Chromebooks.
Public Chromebooks connect to the library's publicly available wireless network. Users should exercise caution when transmitting sensitive information.
The library is not responsible for any loss of data or damage to a user’s personal equipment that may occur due to malfunctioning library hardware and/or software.
