Laptop loans

Borrow a free laptop and internet dongle to access the internet from home.

Laptop Loans is a scheme to lend a laptop to anyone without access to a computer or the internet. You can borrow a laptop and an internet dongle for a week.


If you or someone you know is interested in the scheme, call 07735 609303. This number is staffed between 9am and 12pm Monday to Friday and you can leave a message at other times.

You can also email laptoploans@suffolklibraries.co.uk

How it works

The scheme offers a free one week laptop and 4G dongle loan. You can connect to the internet by plugging the dongle into the laptop, so you’ll be able to connect to the internet without broadband.

It’ll enable you to complete tasks such as job seeking, benefit applications, schoolwork and booking GP or vaccination appointments.

Our staff will book an appointment and you can pick the laptop and dongle up from your nearest library.

All devices are cleaned after use and delivered in a COVID-safe manner.

If you’re interested in booking a laptop you should have a Suffolk Libraries card. Apply for a card now.


The Laptop Loans scheme has been funded by Suffolk’s Contain Outbreak Management Fund.
