Need a laptop? We have laptops for patron use! To use laptops, patrons must

  • Be 18 years and older
  • Have a Homewood Public Library card (the card must be in good standing and registered for a minimum of 30 days)
  • Have a valid driver’s license or state ID
  • Sign a laptop user agreement to be kept on file by the Homewood Public Library

Rules for Laptop Checkout

  • Laptop checkout is for one week with no renewals.
  • Patrons returning laptops will not be allowed a new laptop check out until 24 hours has passed since returning the equipment.
  • Laptops are checked out on a first-come, first-served basis. They cannot be held.

A fine of $10.00 per day will be assessed if the Laptop and/or any accompanying equipment are returned late. This fee will immediately create a block on the patron’s library card which will remain until the laptop is returned. A late return may result in the future forfeiture of laptop (and/or hot spot) check out privileges.

A non-returned laptop will be considered stolen property. As such, procedures for prosecuting individuals to the full extent of the law will be followed. Additionally, remote software will be used to prevent use of any HPL laptop once it becomes overdue.
