CRESTLINE -- The Crestline Public Library has a new mobile hotspot opportunity for patrons.
A hotspot is a wireless access point providing internet access to mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. Service is available through the Sprint network.
Patrons may check out the library's mobile hotspot units for a two-week period. In order to take a hotspot home, patrons must have a library card in good standing, and are required to pay a $20 deposit, that will be refunded upon return of the device.
Borrowers are limited to checking out one hotspot at a time. There are no renewals on hotspots. The jotspot kit must be returned in person to the circulation desk.
Hotspots cannot be returned to a drop box -- a $5 fee will be assessed. Borrowers must be 18 or older with a valid government photo ID. Cardholders must sign a rental agreement. A $2 overdue fine will be charged each day the device is returned late. Hotspots will deactivate when overdue.
The hotspot cannot be used internationally. Hotspots must be kept in a temperature-controlled environment. They should not be kept in hot cars. Borrowers are responsible for replacement costs if any damage or loss results from accident, theft, misuse, or neglect while the hotspot is in their possession.
Internet service relies on cell tower technology and coverage. User experience can vary based on location.
The library is not responsible for personal information shared over the Internet or for information or websites accessed. The library is not responsible for any liability, damage, or expense incurred resulting from the use of the hotspot. Parents/guardians are responsible for the use of the hotspot by minors. Internet content filtering is not provided through the hotspot.
