Can’t keep up- laptop loans

Whenever we have our laptop carts free from class bookings we loan out individual Lenovo notebooks by the hour. We need to have a full set at the ready but while not in reserve, we have barcodef each computer to circulate on demand from the Library. Being a large school of 1800, the number of students on spares any given block means we cannot handle the demand. We don’t have a budget or inventory of extra laptops so teens need to return them every block. The districts equipment doesn’t open up Windows 7 for home borrowing anyway. This is a concern for a library program aiming toward accessibility and open service.

Never confuse the special devices that connect us, with the precious moments that keep us together.
