BRIEF: Lodi Library to offer laptops for members to take home
Jan 11, 2013 (Lodi News-Sentinel - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Need to fill out multiple job applications Planning a business trip and cannot take your desktop The Lodi Public Library is hoping to help out residents with laptops that they can check out to do work with any wireless connection.
The city of Lodi will be offering the Google Chromebooks starting on Wednesday. Library members will be able to borrow the computers for week long intervals.
Everything they do on the computer is run through Google Docs, and will be saved on the Internet so users will be able to access it from any computer in the future. This also prevents other people who check out a computer from seeing what other users have done prieviously.
The computers are part of the library's effort to provide more Internet access, Library Services Manager Andrea Woodruff said.
"As a library, we want to provide access to all materials people are interested in whether it is in the realm of the printed word or images, so this is natural for us," Woodruff said. "It's similar to when we put desktop computers in the library."
