Chromebooks

SPL offers library customers aged 16 and older the option of checkouting out a Chromebook for in-library use.  To complement the increasing usage of wireless connectivity at SPL, we also now provide wireless printing. 

What is a Chromebook?

  • Chromebooks are lightweight and easy to use laptops
  • They boot-up in seconds
  • You can connect to the Library’s WiFi
  • They enable customers to log into their Google accounts to access their own photos, music, videos, documents with Google Drive and Google Docs
  • Chromebooks are secure and protect against viruses and malware without additional software

Borrowing a Chromebook

  • Customers may borrow one Chromebook at a time
  • Customers must be 16 years of age or older, have a Library card that is in good standing as well as valid government-issued photo ID (ie. license, age of majority, passport, health card). The photo ID must be left at the information desk in a secure location for the duration of the Chromebook loan. 
  • The borrowing period is four hours and must be used in the library
  • The late fee is $1 per hour
  • There is a $400 charge for a lost device and $25 processing fee
  • The checkout receipt will include the time when the device is due back

Printing from a Chromebook

You can print one of two ways from our Chromebooks:

  1. Use the library's mobile print service
  2. Save to a thumb drive and print at our colour copier

Cost per copy:

  • black and white - $0.10
  • colour - $0.75
  • For double-sided printing, double the price.
