Borrow a Mobile Hotspot to Access the Internet Anywhere

A mobile hotspot is a Wi-Fi device one can use to connect a mobile-enabled device to the Internet. The hotspots are portable, and Internet service is provided. The hotspot can only be used within the continental United States. The hotspot devices are configured to ensure compliance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA).

  • Borrower must sign the Lending Agreement at each checkout.
  • Borrower is responsible for the hotspot and accessories during the lending period.
  • Hotspots check out for three weeks and may be renewed up to two times (contingent upon Hold requests).
