Chromebooks

Pixelbook GoBorrow a Chromebook to take home or anywhere else you'd like to go.

Chromebooks are lightweight laptops that run on Google's operating system. They are terrific for using the internet and editing files using Google Docs. You need an internet connection to perform most tasks on the Chromebooks. 

Chromebooks are loaned for two weeks. 

Login Options

There are two ways you can use a library Chromebook. 
 

1. Log in with a Google Account

Log in with your own Google account to automatically sign in to Google apps like Gmail, Docs, and Drive. You need an internet connection the first time you log in.

Your files and user data remain on the Chromebook until your account is removed. We remove all personal accounts when a Chromebook is retuned. 
 

2. Log in as Guest

Use the Guest option if you do not want to log in with a Google account. You need an internet connection to perform most tasks as a Guest.   

All files and user data are deleted when you exit your session or when the Chromebook turns off. We recommend you save your work to cloud storage or to an external drive.
