Thanks to an opportunity provided through the government contract division of Verizon, the Library will be able to make 4G Jetpack mobile Hotspots available to patrons for free. During our trial period in the month of February, we will have 2 devices available for patrons aged 18 & up with a patron card in good standing for at least the past 6 months, and a valid ID. Check-out periods for the trial period will be for 3 days, with no automatic renewals. Patrons may check devices out again, if available, after a 24 hour waiting period. Additionally, patrons who utilize the devices will be asked to complete a follow-up survey to assist us in assessing the program, and to determine future needs.
Further information will be available for patrons at the Circulation Desk, or by calling us at 677.7060. A brochure with all relevant patron information will be available by the end of the trial period. Beginning in March, the Library intends to offer more devices for check-out, with a circulation period of 5 days.
