Glendale Community College Library Updates

Check Out a Laptop

Contact Us to Request a Laptop

Updated Monday, March 30, 2020

Although the College is closed, library staff have worked to get as many laptops to GCC students as possible. At this time, we do not have any remaining laptops or Chromebooks available for checkout.

However, the college has ordered additional Chromebooks, wifi hotspots, and other equipment. When these materials come in, we will resume checking them out by appointment. Please follow the instructions below to email and request an appointment.

In the meantime, please be aware that you can access Canvas from a smartphone. For instructions, check out the resources on GCC's COVID-19 Information for Students page. For 24/7 Canvas support, call the Canvas Helpline at 1-844-600-4951.

To request a laptop:

  • Email with your name, GCC ID number, and email address.
  • A library staff member will contact you to set up an appointment.
  • The Library is not currently open to the public. Do not come to the library unless you have been contacted by library staff with an appointment time.

If you already have sent us an email to schedule a laptop appointment: We are processing emails in the order received and will respond as soon as possible. Although we may not be able to honor your request immediately, your name will remain on the list and you’ll be notified if/when more equipment becomes available.

If you missed your appointment: If you missed your appointment to pick up a laptop, we are unable to hold it for you. The demand is too great at this time. We recommend resubmitting a request to with your name, GCC ID number, and email address. This will restart the request process.

Note that while we will do our best to get more laptops into the hands of students who need them, we are unable to ensure every student who wants a laptop gets one. Please be patient as we make the best attempt to honor your laptop request, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
