Wi-Fi Hotspots

Hot Spots 1080Access free, high speed Wi-Fi where and when you need it most. Wi-Fi hotspots provide internet access to families and library customers who don’t have a connection at home. They are a great option for remote workers and virtual learners, and can provide access on the road or in the home.

Check out a hotspot device from your nearest CCPL location to access a free and reliable internet connection. You must be 18 or older to check out a hotspot. Hotspots are for domestic use only and can not be used internationally.

Hotspots are available for checkout with a CCPL library card. Kits come with a case, instructions and charging cord. Once your loan period is done, return the hotspot to the circulation desk (do not place in drop box to avoid damage).

Hotspots provided through The Emergency Connectivity Fund Program are administered by USAC with oversight from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
