LAPTOPS FOR CHECKOUT
To help with the move to online learning, LCC is offering laptops for students to borrow. The laptops will be available under the library’s lending program to take home and use for classwork until the college’s physical locations reopen.
Since all campus buildings are closed, LCC’s Public Safety office will distribute the laptops. You can pick them up 7 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday until the laptops are all checked out. They are available on a first come, first serve basis. The Public Safety office is located in the Gannon Building. You will need to enter Public Safety through the “after hours” door, located off the Mall. You can call Public Safety at 517-483-1800. You will need to bring a valid ID card, and provide a working phone number.
If you already have a laptop checked out from the Library, you don't need to return it now.
Below are some options for getting internet set up at your home:
