Laptops Available for Checkout at the Birmingham Public Libraries

You already know that you can use your library card to checkout books, movies, music, downloadables, and art prints. But did you also know that you can use your library card to checkout laptops? All Birmingham Public libraries now offer laptops for one hour in-house checkouts. One laptop is available at each of the Birmingham Public branches, and there are twenty available at the Central Library.

To checkout a laptop, you must:
  • Be 18 years or older
  • Have a valid Alabama driver's license
  • Have a full-use library card in good standing
So, the next time you're in the library and the computer stations are full, pull out your card, checkout a laptop, and find a table. Wireless Internet access and printing are available from wherever the laptop is checked out.
