Library Laptops

Is it possible to have the laptops cleaned before given out to the next user.

I often receive laptops that are filthy from previous users. I need to bring my own wipes to wipe off the keyboard, etc. It’s quite disgusting

It would be nice if they can be quickly sanitized between users.

Unfortunately, there are far too many loans of laptops (weekly, monthly, yearly) to have a supply of wipes to provide this service.

Library users are free to bring their own wipes if they are concerned and wish to wipe down a laptop or library desktop keyboard before using them.

Spring and summer hours at the libraries

Hi,  With the library being the TO GO place to study, Please extend opening hours for summers. Most of our classes finish at 9 and that does not give us much time to study in a quiet place! Thank you

Thank you for your comment.

Opening hours for the Webster Library is based on usage and the needs of users. In the summer, visits to the Libraries are significantly reduced compared to the fall and winter semesters.

There is not enough activity prior to 9:00 a.m. to justify the cost of staffing.
