“Takeout Tech” services expected to expand to more library branches


DeKalb County Public Library has launched a new service for patrons in which select branches now have Google Chromebooks to check out for up to six hours at a time.

Clarkston, Salem-Panola, Scott Candler, Stonecrest and Wesley Chapel-William C. Brown branches have Chromebooks available on a first-come first-served basis.

Patrons can call one of the select branches to schedule pickup at the contact-free table, then connect to the library’s WiFi in the library parking lot or anywhere else with WiFi access.

The Chromebook should be turned in later that same day at the branch where it was checked out. A Gmail or Google account is encouraged but not required.

This new service was implemented to help patrons with no computer access who need assistance with digital learning or filling out job applications. “Takeout Tech” will be expanded to more branches later this month. Get more details here (
