09 Jul Wi-Fi On the Go
New Tech to Check Out
By Taylor Morgan
Planning a vacation or need to work on-the-go? The Library is now lending mobile Wi-Fi hotspots which provide convenient, portable internet access. Stored within a compact carrying case, these Coolpad Surf Mobile Hotspots are easy to transport to all of your destinations, whether you are venturing to parks, beaches, your backyard, or an offsite business meeting. With VPN capabilities, you will be able to access work files during long road trips or at hotels. The hotspots can connect up to 10 wireless-enabled devices, allowing the whole family to explore the internet. Wi-Fi coverage is provided by Sprint and is available throughout the United States. Please check this coverage map to ensure service is available at your destination.
Ten devices are available on a first-come-first-served basis to Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library cardholders only, who are 18 or older. One renewal is allowed per check-out, but this item will not be renewed automatically; patrons must renew through their online account or with a Circulation staff member. You are encouraged to check our online catalog for availability.
- The hotspot kit consists of the wireless hotspot device, charger, instruction sheet, and carrying case.
- Hotspots are Sprint supported and have the same coverage as Sprint devices in the United States. Please check this coverage map to ensure service is available at your destination.
- Hotspots can be checked out for a seven-day period with a one time renewal on a first-come, first-served basis.
- To renew checkouts, patrons should either log-in to their Evergreen Account or contact the Circulation Desk at 317-873-8340.
Hotspots may be found at the second floor Circulation Desk. Ask a Circulation staff member to assist you in checking out a device the next time you visit the Library!
