Chromebooks, Museum Passes, and More!

Sara Slymon | November 12, 2020

We’re excited to announce three new and returning items that you can now reserve for contactless pickup at the Library:

Chromebooks

You can now check out a Chromebook for two weeks! These simple laptop computers let you browse the internet, participate in web conferences / video meetings, do word processing, etc. You do need a WiFi connection to make Chromebooks work, so if you don’t have easy access to that it might be worth requesting a WiFi hotspot at the same time.

Launchpads

You can now check out a Launchpad for two weeks, too! Launchpads are preloaded tablets with content for kids, full of games and videos covering topics from literacy to dinosaurs to cooking, and more. There is no download time and no WiFi connection needed.

Museum Passes

Many of our museum passes are back! We are thrilled to be able to offer some of our most popular passes again. You can reserve passes for the Boston Children’s Museum, the New England Aquarium, and more.

Many museums now require advanced tickets as well as passes, so make sure you check the museum’s ticketing process before you go.
