Laptop Loan Program

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, F. D. Bluford Library fully supports distance and virtual learning initiatives. The Library has created a Laptop Lending Program that offers enrolled students the availability to checkout laptops for academic support and success. These devices can be borrowed on a first-come, first-served basis. Students outside of Guilford County will receive top priority.

Request a Laptop

Laptops may be checked out for a short loan period of one week. Students living outside of Guilford County may checkout a laptop for the semester. Local students (within Guilford County) have the option of picking up a laptop from the library. Students living outside of Guilford County may receive it through the mail. Students living outside of Guilford County receive top priority. Students may request a laptop in person or online with the laptop reservation form. Please provide us with your current mailing address, contact information, etc.
