Hotspots and Chromebooks are devices that may be checked out by patrons with a library card in good standing and no fines over $5.00. Checkout is on a first-come, first-served basis for 1 week.
To ensure that these devices are available to everyone, patrons will be limited to one of each type at a time, with no renewals and no holds. A charge of $10 a day will incur for overdues.
Never return a hotspot or Chromebook in the book drop. All components of these devices must be returned in-person, during open hours, to the circulation desk at the same library from which it was checked out. Patrons are responsible for any loss or damage that occurs before a device is returned to staff at the circulation desk. Patrons are responsible for the full replacement cost (up to $1000) of a device if it is damaged or stolen and library borrowing privileges will be revoked.
This device operates in accordance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). For more information, please visit fcc.gov/guides/childrens-internet-protection-act.
