Thanks to a grant from the federal Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) we have a couple of Kajeet mobile hotspots to loan to patrons who can confirm that that they lack access to services sufficient to access the internet.
Internet service with this wireless hotspot will depend on cell tower technology and coverage in your area. The Forest Lodge Library cannot guarantee that the hotspot will work well in your location. Due to the requirements of the ECF, this hotspot includes a content filter. The library has no control over the filter parameters. We cannot guarantee that the filter will block all objectionable content on the internet. Do not attempt to alter or disable the filter or any other features of the device.
Hotspots are loaned for seven (7) If a hotspot is not returned on time and in good condition, it will be deactivated by the library. Each household may check out only one hotspot at a time. Upon returning the hotspot, the household must wait at least 24 hours before checking out another hotspot.
Hotspots must be returned to the library during normal library hours. Do not place hotspots in the book drop.
If guidelines are not followed patrons may be charged for replacement parts or necessary services.
