Lansing Community College Library

LAPTOPS

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.

WHERE DO I CHECK OUT A LAPTOP?

Starting August 10th, students will be able to call 517-483-1038 between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM, Monday - Friday to set up an appointment to pick up an LCC laptop. Appointments will be on a first come first serve basis. Call 517-483-1038 for more information. 

WHEN DO I RETURN MY LAPTOP?

If you are graduating spring 2020 or not taking summer classes, you need to return your laptop to Public Safety. Otherwise, you can keep your laptop until further notice. No fines or fees will be charged while the library is physically closed. Laptops checked out starting August 10th will not need to be returned until the end of Fall 2020 semester.
