Have you ever wanted to “check out” the whole internet for three weeks? Well – now you can! We are offering WiFi hotspots you can check out with your library card for 21 days.
A WiFi hotspot is a small device that allows you to wirelessly connect to the internet. Now you can browse the web to look for a job, do some research, turn in your homework, stream a movie or catch up on the daily news from anywhere. The library has MiFi brand hotspots so you will see and hear the terms WiFi hotspot and MiFi used interchangeably.
After you check out one of our 40 WiFi hotspots, follow the simple instructions in the box to connect and you are all set.
