With your library card, you can borrow a Google Chromebook to surf the Internet, work in Google programs, or play online games with the freedom to work in any area of the library. Chromebooks are available to library card holders for a period of four hours. Chromebooks must remain inside the library at all times.
These devices are available for a period of four hours. For every hour the Chromebook is overdue, you will be charged a $10 late fee. Children and teens are able to borrow a Chromebook with parental permission for Internet use.
Chromebooks are made available with support from the Barberton Community Foundation and the 2016 Discover Your Library fundraiser.
