Laptop Checkout

To borrow a laptop, customers can call the library when they arrive and ask to check out a laptop. For information on what number to call, see the Library Contact-Free numbers. As with other contact-free delivery, staff will place the laptop outside for the customer to pick up.

Each laptop can be checked out for up to two hours on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are not accepted at this time. Laptops will only work on library premises either outside of the library or in the library parking lot.


You need to have a valid library card to check out a laptop and cannot use the online library number or a number beginning with PACREG.

Service Details

  • Log on to the laptop using your library card number and PIN/password.
  • You can extend your time with the laptop as long as another laptop is available for someone else to use.
  • Printing is available using the $7 weekly printing allowance and jobs are sent directly to the print queue. For information on how to pick up your print jobs, please continue reading below.
  • We have established a cleaning procedure, approved by the Snohomish County Health District, for in-between customer use.

Need Help?

If you’re using a laptop and need help, you can call the library or chat. Additionally, a “Help” icon has been added to the desktop for quick access to your local librarian. For more in-depth help, customers can set up a Book-A-Librarian session.
