Everett Public Library makes Chromebooks and Wi-Fi hotspots available to community members who need technology and internet access beyond the library walls. Chromebook computers and Wi-Fi Hotspots may be checked out for three weeks.

Chromebooks are pre-loaded with many apps to help students, job seekers, and the general public navigate online resources. Hotspots provide data service to connect Chromebooks, smart phones, tablets and other devices to the Internet. Chromebooks and Hotspots can be checked out together or separately.

Chromebook and Wi-Fi Hotspots are available to anyone with an Everett Library card in good standing. Borrowers need to sign a Checkout Agreement. Patrons under 18 years of age need to have a parent signature.

The devices are available for a 3 week checkout with the possibility of renewing 2 times if no one is on the waitlist.

Documents or personal information will not stay on the Chromebook after it is returned. When a patron manually clicks to Exit Session or Log Out, all of their history and files are cleared from the Chromebook.

The Library has created a comprehensive quick start guide to assist with using the Chromebook. The Guide will be provided at checkout and is available online. Patrons can also request a 30- or 60-minute Book-a-Librarian appointment for one-on-one tech assistance.
