Chromebooks & Printing

Several of our branches now offer on-site printing services and Chromebook usage. Create new or work on existing files from your own USB drive or cloud storage using Chromebook apps like Google Docs and PDF Viewer. (Microsoft Office products are not available.) You can browse the internet and print up to 10 pages free-of-charge, or you can bring in your own notebook, tablet, or smartphone to print documents.

At most locations, the Chromebook usage area is situated near the library’s front entrance. Users are physically distanced, and there are strict limits on the numbers of user admitted simultaneously. At the South Valleys Library, Chromebooks are checked out at the front entrance and used outside the library. Users are welcome to use the Chromebooks in their cars, but they must remain in the South Valleys Library’s parking lot.

Temperature checks and hand sanitization are required before usage. Face masks must be worn during sessions, and can be provided. All Chromebooks will be sanitized by our staff members between uses, to reduce likelihood of COVID-19 transmission.

  • First-come, first-served.
  • 30-minute sessions, one per day, on-site use only.
  • Services may be suspended due to inclement weather, short staffing, or shortage of personal protective equipment.
  • Staff assistance will be limited due to social distancing guidelines.
  • Temperatures will be taken and must be below 100.4.
  • Library card or other ID is not required.
  • Files may not be saved to the Chromebook itself, but only to a cloud account such as Google Drive or to a USB drive.
  • All Chromebooks will be collected 15 minutes prior to closing time.
