You will require a cable to hook up lap tops to the AV system. The Hershey Public Library has loaner HDMI and VGA cables to allow you to use the system. Most newer laptops will use the HDMI cord. Older laptops may have to use a VGA cord to connect. If you have an Apple laptop you will also need an “adapter” which allows you to connect the Apple laptop to the cable so you can use the system.
Please speak to a staff member at the front desk to sign out a bag containing cables and adapters that work with your device. Available upon request is an HDMI cable along with an Apple connector, and a VGA to HDMI converter/adapter to connect an older Microsoft computer (that has no HDMI output) to our AV system. Borrowers will need to sign the sheet and bring the bag back with the devices at the end of the meeting.
Mobile Device Charging Cables:
If your smartphone or tablet battery charge is low, we have cables and adapters at the front desk that you sign out to borrow to charge your android or Apple (iOS) device while inside the library.
