During this current period of distance learning, access to technology is essential to all pupils. We have started to build a library of reconditioned notebooks, laptops and tablets. We’d love to hear from you if you have one or more machines to donate to the library or if you are a school or community group that would like to loan machines. Please contact us on email@example.com.
How does it work?
We distribute our Laptop Library through schools or community groups. All machines will come loaded with Windows 10 and Libre Office or, where possible, Microsoft Office. This means pupils will have the ability to browse the internet, access online learning platforms, as well as create documents, spreadsheets and presentations.
Each loan will be 'time bound' to the end of the period of school closure, but this may be extended by mutual agreement. Or, if desired, the recipient will be welcome to purchase the machine at a pre-agreed replacement cost at the end of the loan period.
How much does it cost?
This service is offered free of charge. However, we require a guarantee in the form of a simple Loan Agreement that all damage-repairs or replacements will be paid for by the recipient, at cost price. We would always seek to keep costs down and so would repair machines where possible. If a machine cannot be repaired the cost of replacement would need to be met by the recipient. No repair or replacement would exceed £80 and, in most instances, would be much less than this.
We’d love to hear from you if you can support the library with donated machines or if you would like to take advantage of a loan!
