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 adults with library cards in good standing
  • Lending period: three weeks.
  • No renewals.
  • No holds.
  • 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 $100.
  • Limit one per household, please.

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

    The library reserves the right to refuse hotspots to cardholders who abuse them or who are repeatedly late in returning them.

    The library is not responsible for any liability, damages, or expenses resulting from use or misuse of library hotspots, connection of the device to other electronic devices, or data loss resulting from the use of the hotspot.

    Any use of the device for illegal purposes, unauthorized copying of copyright-protected material in any format, or transmission of threatening, harassing, defamatory, or obscene materials is prohibited.
