Check Out a WiFi Hotspot
Now available for check out: the Internet! Borrow one of our mobile WiFi hotspots to get internet access on the go or at home. The easy-to-use, hand-held Library Hotspots allow you to connect up to 10 devices at a time with no limits on data. Place a hold on one now or read on for more information!
How do I check out a hotspot?
Stop by the Library or use your Library card to place a hold (search “hotspot” in the catalog) and check it out just like any other item. The hotspots can be checked out at the Pauline Haass Library only; they cannot be picked up or dropped off at other CAFE libraries.
The Library also has 4 “Lucky Day” hotspots: these cannot be put on hold, so stop in to see if one is available!
Who can check out a hotspot?
Adult (18 & older) cardholders in good standing can check out a hotspot. Find more information on getting a library card here.
How long can I keep it?
Hotspots can be borrowed for 7 days. Overdue hotspots will have Internet access disabled. There is a $1.00 per day overdue charge.
“Lucky Day” hotspots (non-holdable) can be borrowed for 14 days. Overdue hotspots will have Internet access disabled. There is a $5.00 per day overdue charge.
Can I reserve a hotspot to check out for a particular date and time?
No. You can place holds on the hotspots, but we cannot guarantee their availability for a specific date or time.
How do I return it?
Hotspots must be returned to a staff member at the Pauline Haass Library. You must return the hotspot with all parts (carrying case, charger, battery, coverage map). Please do not return in the book drop.
Can I renew it?
Yes, hotspots can be renewed as long as there are no holds from other library users.
“Lucky Day” hotspots cannot be renewed.
