Mobile Hotspots

 What does a mobile hotspot do?

A mobile hotspot is an electronic device that makes it possible to use the internet in areas with no service.  It uses 3G and 4G networks, just like a smartphone. Once it has picked up a cellular data connection, it can share that connection with other devices.

What kind of devices work with a mobile hotspot?

Many WiFi enabled electronics can connect with the internet using a hotspot, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, game consoles, and other devices.

 

  • Mobile Hotspots are available to Middletown residents, 18 years or older, with library cards in good standing
  • Lending period: three weeks; two renewals available if the hotspot isn’t on hold.
  • Hotspots may be put on hold by calling the circulation desk or making a request online through the library’s catalog.
  • Available for pickup at the Circulation Desk whenever the library is open.
  • Must be returned to Russell Library at the Circulation Desk whenever the library is open. Hotspots returned to another library will be considered lost and a replacement fee will be charged.
  • Hotspots will be disconnected after 24 hours if not returned. If the hotspot is lost or permanently damaged, the replacement cost is $25.
  • Limit one per household, please.

Hotspots are available for checkout at the main desk of the library!
