What is a HOTSPOT?


This small device packs a big punch! 

Turn it on and you can connect your laptop, tablet, or phone

to the Internet. 

Each hotspot can connect up to ten devices at one time.

Even if you already have an internet connection, you may benefit

from the convenience of using a hotspot.

The Kalama Public Library offers HOTSPOTS for checkout to library patrons for an initial three-week period, with one renewal (if no one is waiting).  After that, patrons must wait four weeks before checking out a HOTSPOT again.
