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

This thing is great. It can get a little iffy at times, but it runs really well for the most part. I'm able to be on my tablet and free phone at home and on the go. I'm able to use it on the bus with little problems as well as my school. My school has terrible open wifi reception and my free phone wifi is terrible as well. This device works way better and I can do my research without the nagging lag at my school. It plays pretty well while streaming and browsing the internet runs really smoothly as well. I'm using the Sprint Hot Spot Device, and I have little problems with it. For the most part. I'm using the Hot Spot Device as I type my feedback on my phone. It's exceptional and I will be renewing it again.

I noticed that some hot spots are att and some are sprint? The sprint ones we have had zero reception 😐

Love it. It's not a typically recognizable gem of CPL.

My children and I LOVE this device. I do not have internet outside of my home, this is our companion. The CPL makes it possible for homework at the park, movies on the go, driving directions, checking prices at the thrift store. my children and my use for this device is endless. THANK YOU CPL

I was glad to be able to use the Hotspot provided by the library because I cancelled my Hotspot service due to the expense and I really missed it. This kept me from having to take my laptop to the library every time I wanted to use the Internet or being limited to the 2 hours and not remembering all of my passwords to get into programs I wanted to access.
