Laptop & Equipment Checkout

The library has many items for checkout other than books and DVDs. Our equipment checkout service includes a variety of technologies for use by patrons, including laptops, iPads, video cameras, headphones, a turntable and much more.

The checkout service is located at the circulation desk on the first floor of Kimbel Library. All of these items can be checked out of the library for one 24-hour period, with two 24-hour renewals. Fines for late returns have also been reduced to $5 per day.

All you have to do to renew your equipment each day is log into your library account. You can also call us at 843-249-2400. We’re open 24/7, so daily equipment renewals are no problem. Just give us a call! 

All Library Use Only equipment (Eno Board kits, wireless keyboards, MacBook VGA adaptors, etc.) is still available for checkout at the Peter C. Bolton Help Desk in the Bryan Information Commons. 

Visit our equipment availability page to see some of the more popular equipment available for checkout.
