You can now borrow the Internet from Mentor Public Library.
We’re lending hotspots that can provide wi-fi to your wireless-enhanced devices like computers, smartphones and tablets.
Use it at home or take it with you to the park or on vacation. Connect to everywhere from anywhere. And there are no data plan limits!
Guidelines for Borrowing & Use
Loan period: You can borrow a hotspot for up to 10 days. No renewals.
Holds: These hotspots are, well, hot. So we can’t hold them for long. If you call to reserve a hotspot, we’ll hold it that—and only that—day.
Where it works: Anywhere in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, that’s covered by T-Mobile’s network. (No international.)
What you need: You must be 18 or older and have a Mentor Public Library card in good standing (not more than $5 in fines.) You will also need to complete and sign an Electronic Device Agreement with each checkout, acknowledging financial responsibility for lost or damaged equipment.
Patrons will be fined $5 for each day a hotspot is returned late, up to $25. After five days, we will deactivate the device and bill the patron to replace the device.
If the hotspot is damaged or lost, the patron will also have to pay to replace it.
Finally, please do not return hotspots, or any other electronic device from MPL, in our book drops. It’s very easy for them to get damaged that way.
