Need a laptop on loan? Chromebooks are available for checkout at all seven Arlington Public Library locations by adult library card holders.
The Arlington Public Library first made Chromebooks available at the East Library and Recreation Center in September 2021 as part of an initiative to help close the digital divide in our community. Today, more than 200 Chromebooks are available across all library locations in The American Dream City. Users can check out and take home a device for 30 days with an adult library card in good standing. Since 2021, patrons have checked out Chromebooks more than 2,080 times.
