Checkout a Chromebook and a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot from the library and take the internet home with you!
What is it?
A mobile hotspot is a portable device that provides internet access to any Wi-Fi enabled device within approximately 30 feet.
The Chromebooks, when connected to a mobile hotspot or other internet source, will allow patrons to browse the internet and use android or Chrome web store apps for word processing, games, and more.
How it works
Mobile Wi-Fi hotspots and Chromebook kits are available for checkout to library patrons who are 18 years of age or older, with a limit of one per household. Chromebook kits and a Mobile Wi-Fi hotspots check out for two weeks, just like a book. If you want to keep it longer, you can check out the same Chromebook and/or Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot again if it is not currently on hold for another patron.
What is included?
The Chromebook kits include a Chromebook, charger, mouse, carrying case, and instructions. The Mobile hotspot and its charger come in a separate case.
This project is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
