Holiday Laptop Loans
For those without computer access over a holiday, consider trying the Library's holiday laptop loan program. Starting after noon on the day before the holiday, you can check out a laptop to take off campus, which then must be returned by 9:30 pm on the day after the holiday.
Example: for the President's Day holiday celebrated on Monday, Feb 16, you may borrow a laptop to take home anytime after 12:00 noon on Sunday, Feb 15, and then return it by 9:30 pm on Tuesday evening, Feb 17.
A limited number of laptops are available for a holiday loan, so lending is on a first-come, first-served basis.
NOTE: because of high demand for laptop use in the Library, we must be very strict about return times. You must return the laptop in good condition within the time specified, or risk significant fines. See below for further information.
Holiday laptop loan policies:
If you have any special circumstances that would prevent your returning the laptop on time, please call the Circulation Desk (617-287-5900) BEFORE THE DUE TIME. Ask to speak to the Supervisor on duty, who will try to arrange a laptop loan period that will accommodate your needs. Your call will be logged and the loan record will be adjusted on your library account. Again, please note that this must be arranged BEFORE the due time!
