You may place requests for laptops and hotspots by following the steps below.
Each Dell laptop comes pre-installed with the following programs:
A charging cable will also come with the laptop. Additionally, there are certain programs that can be downloaded should you need them, like Zoom.
Chromebooks are for those who need basic access to the internet and cannot have special programs/software downloaded onto them. Selecting a Chromebook over a Dell laptop will only give patrons the ability to user "browser-friendly" versions of programs such as Microsoft Suite (Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc) and Google (Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, etc). Canvas would also be accessible.
