Chromebook Borrowing Form

ALL students who borrow a Chromebook from the Library MUST fill out this form first. Students will return their Library Loaner Chromebook by the end of the school day.  If not returned, the Chromebook will be disabled, and eventually, students will be issued a bill for the current value of a new Chromebook - $199. Students are not allowed to borrow another Library Chromebook until they have returned or paid for the previous Chromebook.
