Does the library have phone and laptop chargers available for loan?

Many Harvard libraries have laptop and phone chargers available, usually for 3-hour loan.  Ask at the circulation desk for more details, as the specific chargers available vary from library to library and will change as technology changes. Most libraries also have laptops, netbooks, headphones, flash drives, and other technical devices available for loan. See the Tech Loan page for more information about devices available in Lamont, Cabot, and Wolbach, as well as the Find a Space app on the Harvard Library web site.
