Mobile hotspots

We are happy to offer mobile internet hotspots to our patrons for checkout!  Hotspots provide a Wi-Fi signal using mobile phone networks.  Turn it on and connect any device to your very own Wi-Fi network!

Our mobile hotspots rely on the Sprint network, so signal strength depends on the reception in your area.

Hotspots are available to check out for 1 week and you must be 14 years of age or older.  Contact us to see if a hotspot is available!

Do you also need a computer to use on the internet?  The library has 2 Chromebooks available to check out!  Check out our Computers page for more details about Chromebooks.
