Borrow a Netbook
The Library now has HP Mini Netbooks to check out for North Valley Public Library cardholders!
The Netbooks are refurbished donated laptops configured to use Google Chrome. They are great for browsing the internet, checking email, and updating your social media once you have a WiFi connection. Netbooks can only be used to connect to the Internet, so any files you need to edit will need to be found and edited online.
So how do you borrow one of these Netbooks? Just swing by the Library and use your North Valley Public Library card to check one out for 14 days and find some free WiFi! Just remember to bring it back on time, the overdue fee is $1.00 per day.
