What is a Chromebook?

A Chromebook is a laptop device that uses the ChromeOS operating system, which is based on the Google Chrome web browser.  You can use a Chromebook to do just about anything you would normally do online; checking your email, reading websites, watching videos, online classes and meetings etc.

Chromebooks are available to checkout, and are also available for in-library use.  Please ask for a Chromebook at the Reference desk.

What is a Hotspot?

A portable WiFi hotspot is a pocket sized mobile router, which you can take with you setup an internet connection.  With the signal that the hotspot creates, you can connect your smartphone, tablet and laptop to the internet. This will enable you to set up your own private internet connection. Perfect for mobile workers and travelers.
