Is there some place I can rent or borrow a color calibration device?

I would like to color calibrate my MacBook Pro, to improve the results I get from printing photos at whcc. However, I'm not a professional and I don't want to spend upwards of $125 on a colorimeter. Is there some place in the Boston area (preferably Brookline) where I can borrow or rent a colorimeter for one-time use?
- Will calibration change what I see on my screen to match what will come out of the printer or will it create a profile of my screen so that the printer can match what I see? The latter seems more convenient, but my discussion with a rep from WHCC seemed to indicate the former: it would change my screen to match what will eventually come out of the printer.
- Is calibrating my screen once sufficient, or do I need to calibrate it every time I put together a print job? My computer is a 2013 MacBook Pro with a Retina display.
