Wireless Hotspots Available for Check-Out

Wireless hotspots are now available for check out at our Pop-Up Libraries! Anyone can check one out, but limit one per household.

They check out for 1 week with 2 renewals. The hotspots have 2GB of high speed data, but will drop to dial up speed once that is used up. An internet provider is not needed to use them. Just connect them to your device with the login information that comes with the hotspot! This service is free. All you need is your library card!
