LaptopLaptops Check Out for Two Hours

The library has Microsoft Windows laptops available for checkout for up to two hours of use in the library.  The use of these laptops is free of charge to current students, staff, and faculty at College of San Mateo. See the list of software available at right. Laptops are available on a first-come first-served basis.

IMPORTANT: The software on the laptops is licensed by location and so will only work in the library. Checkout is currently limited to in-library use. 


Visit the circulation desk and ask for a laptop loan agreement form or download the form at the bottom of this page. Once you fill out the form and turn it in, you can reserve and check out a laptop, get onto the Internet, or work on a paper.


Arrive at the Circulation Desk when you would like to checkout a laptop. 


If you need  to access a computer but don't want to fill out a form, you are always free to use a PC or Mac workstation that are available throughout the library's main floor.
