LIBRARY LAPTOP POLICY

 

Any patron with a Belgrade Community Library (or BridgerNet) card in good standing (not expired and no fines over $10.00) may check out a laptop computer using a current photo ID and patronís library card (the ID and library card will be held at the circulation desk while the laptop is checked out).

†††††††††††

Laptop use is restricted to the main floor of the library. Laptops should not be taken into the restrooms.† Laptops may be checked out for two consecutive hours. A laptop may not be renewed.

 

Laptops are available when the library is open. Laptops should be turned in fifteen minutes prior to closing. Laptops cannot be borrowed 30 minutes or less before the library closes.

A signed Library Laptop Loan Agreement Form must be on file at the circulation desk. The borrower who checks out the laptop is responsible for damage until the laptop is returned to the circulation desk.

 

Patrons may not leave the laptop unattended. Leave the laptop with a library staff member at the circulation desk if you must exit the library while the laptop is checked out to you. The library is not responsible for any lost files nor will any files be saved on the hard drive.

 

Laptops must be returned to a library staff member and not just left on the counter when returned. Please report any technical problems or equipment malfunctions to library staff.
