A WiFi hotspot is a device that allows you to connect your mobile enabled devices (e.g. laptop, smartphones, tablets, etc.) to the Internet. The hotspot is portable so you can connect your device almost wherever you go (for example: home, on the bus, in the park, etc.) A resident of Chicago with an active adult Chicago Public Library card may borrow a Wi-Fi hotspot from selected Chicago Public Library branches for three weeks. The device may be renewed if no one else has placed it on hold. (Renewals must be done by library staff.) The hotspot must be returned to the Circulation Desk of the CPL branch where it was borrowed. The hotspot will be turned off and the wireless service terminated if the hotspot is not returned on the due date.
Characteristics: 1 Wi-Fi hotspot device + 1 cord.
Alternative Title: Internet-to-go
