Laptop Checkout Policy

The Augusta County Library provides computers for public use as a service to its patrons. Public-use laptops are available during regular hours of operation at the Fishersville library only and may be checked out at the Help Desk.

Patrons may reserve a computer for a daily limit of two hours. Laptops must remain within the library.

Patrons are welcome to use their own USB flash drives for downloads. Patrons are not allowed to save files or download files onto the hard drives. Only library-owned software may be used on library laptops.  

Laptop users must be 12 or over and have a Library card in good standing.

A patron’s use of a laptop computer may be restricted at the discretion of Library staff.  Unauthorized use of the library’s laptop computers, including tampering with the system’s operation, integrity or security, may result in the loss of privileges and/or barring from the library.

Library staff will assist patrons with computer use if time permits.
