We have HotSpots, Chromebooks, and Webcams for checkout at each of our library branches!

HotSpots
A hotspot brings Wi-Fi with you wherever you may be. Hook your laptop, smartphone or tablet to the internet without having to track down a public place that offers Wi-Fi. We also have HotSpots just for students!

Chromebooks
Chromebooks are powerful in their simplicity, allowing users to access the internet, especially Gmail and other Google services, quickly and easily, as well as limited capability for downloading and storing files. You can now check one out for a day to finish work or just test it out. Wi-Fi access is required to use it.

Webcams
Our webcams feature a glass lens with autofocus and a 78° diagonal field of view. Full HD streaming captures all the details, bright, natural colors, and fluid video at 1080p/30fps—and in HD at 720p/60fps. Use Capture to zoom, pan, and edit.

*The Tops and Spots Technology Lending Library and programs was supported by grant funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) as administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (IMLS grant number LS-250229-OLS-21) and by a grant from Weyerhaeuser Corporation Giving Fund.
