The Laptop Loaner Program is a program that allows registered students who have a ZERO balance (owes no tutition or fees) to check out a laptop for an entire semester. (Students approved for financial aid that has yet to be applied to their tuition will be considered).
The library now has a limited supply of laptops. We will checkout laptops out to registered students as long as they are available.
We do keep 2 laptops charged in the library for emergency use only.
1. Students must call, email or come by the library to check out a laptop.
2. Students will complete and sign a laptop agreement form at the library.
3. All laptops are due at the assigned date near the end of each semester.
***Please call or email before you come to the library to see if laptops are available.

Reserves are items, including textbooks, that Lawson State instructors have placed for student use behind the Circulation Desk in the Libraries. Reserve materials can include additional reading assignments, sample test questions, class notes, various textbooks and other course related supplements. Reserve items are arranged by course number (located on your schedule or syllabus). You will need your Lawson State Student Photo ID Card to view any reserve materials located in the library.
Reserve materials are checked out for two (2) hours at a time, and are "in-house-use", which means they are to be used only within the Libraries (Bessemer or Birmingham campus).
