The Klamath County Libraries have added more electronic devices for patrons to check out starting Monday, Dec. 17: three Lenovo Chromebook hybrid tablet/laptops. Each laptop can be checked out for seven days, according to a news release.

The laptops feature an 11.6-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth to connect it to a wide variety of wireless devices, and a battery life of up to 10 hours between charges. It also has a swiveling hinge between the screen and keyboard, allowing users to fold back the keyboard and use it as a tablet, or stand it up as a media player.

The fine print: You must be at least 18 years old to check out an electronic device from the library; equipment checkouts are not renewable (but patrons can put a device on hold); equipment must be turned in to a library staff member and not a book drop. (A $5 fee will apply to any user who turns in a device to the book drop, along with additional fees if anything is damaged.) Overdue fees for electronic equipment is $1 per day.

Patrons can also check out Kindle Fire tablets, Roku Express+ media streaming devices, a portable projector and a vehicle diagnostic code reader from the Klamath County Libraries. For more information, visit your local library or call 541-882-8894.
