Unless otherwise noted, all Gadgets are out-of-the-building loans. Due to high demand and limited supply, laptops are only available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Each patron is allowed one laptop at a time and one renewal per day with a maximum of 24 total laptop loan hours. You may chat with Public Services for Instant Checkout gadget renewal. Renewals or extensions for Reservation Gadgets are not permitted. You may submit a second request for a back-to-back booking.
