With a Chromebook Bundle, you have the internet at your fingertips!
We have bundled a Wi-Fi hotspot and Chromebook together for you to check out as a Bundle.
Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library Chromebook Bundles can be used for:
Writing and checking email
Creating and editing documents using Google Drive
Reading eBooks/listening to eAudiobooks from OverDrive
Watching films with streaming services like hoopla, kanopy and All Access Video
Security: You log in with your personal Gmail account and create/use your documents in your Google Drive cloud. As soon as you log out or shut down the computer it will erase everything about you from the system. Any changes you made are saved on the Google servers though, so if you log back in with your Gmail account, it will revert back to your options.
You can change layouts, settings, and accessibility options. Nothing you change or add will be seen by anyone else who uses the Chromebook; it will all be deleted once you log out or shut down. Everything you change or add will be saved in the cloud with your Google account. The next time you use a Chromebook your previous settings will be available. You can download apps like Libby, Hoopla and Kanopy to use our library digital collection with your library card.
If you download a PDF, Word document, image, video, or audio file, they will go to the “Files” folder on the computer (you can’t save anything to the desktop). You can open or play most file formats from the Files folder, but anything left there when you log off or shut down will be deleted, so make sure you move anything you downloaded to a flash drive, external drive, SD card, or into the cloud drive.
