Mobile Hotspot Lending

The Granville County Library System is the proud recipient of the LSTA EZ Grant.  This SLNC grant affords us the ability to allow patrons to borrow free internet using a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot device.  A hotspot is a portable device that provides Wi-Fi internet access to computers, phones, and tablets. They connect to 4G LTE speeds through a cellular network and the GCLS hotspots come with unlimited data.  If you don’t have internet at home or need a reliable internet connection, hotspots are a great option.

Hotspot Checkout

Granville County Library patrons who do not have home internet access can now borrow portable hotspots to easily get online from almost anywhere.  By using our Quick Start Guide, getting started is as easy as 1-2-3!

Rules for Borrowing

  • Must be 18 or older with a card in good standing
  • A signed borrower’s agreement is required
  • 7-day checkout; no holds and no renewals.
  • 1 hotspot checked out per household.
  • Hotspots must be returned to the front desk; not to a book drop.

  • If lost or not returned, a $120 charge will be billed to the patron’s account.
