Avondale Public Libraries will make available 22 Chromebook kits for check out at the Avondale Civic Center and the Sam Garcia Western Avenue library branch locations.
Chromebook kits include a Chromebook and mobile hotspot to allow library cardholders who do not have computers at home to participate in computer-based activities such as online schooling or Zoom job interviews. The kits are lightweight and portable allowing patrons to use them almost anywhere.
Funding for the kits comes from a combination of sources, including grants from Valley of the Sun United Way and the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Adult library cardholders in good standing are eligible to reserve and checkout a Chromebook kit. Kits may be borrowed for 90 days. Patrons may place a hold on a Chromebook kit by calling the library at 623-333-BOOK and having their library card number available. It is recommended that patrons call during library operational hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays; 1 to 5 p.m. Fridays to Sundays.
