  • A laptop computer must be returned to the library location from which it was borrowed.
  • All work on laptop computers are deleted when the computer is turned off or runs out of battery. I understand that work cannot be saved to the computer. It must be saved to a USB drive, email, or cloud storage. Library laptops can connect to the internet, but only if a wifi signal is available.
