Know Your Library – Hotspots

Did you know that Muhlenberg County Public Libraries has Wi-Fi hotspots available for checkout?

These hotspots allow Internet access for patrons in remote areas of the county who may not otherwise have a reliable connection.

We have a limited number of hotspots available at each library branch.

Due to the popularity and limited availability of these items, as well as their relatively higher cost, there are some special restrictions on hotspot checkouts. We limit checkouts to one week, and they cannot be renewed. (These items may be checked out again at a later date, if available, but they must be returned to the library first.)

Late fees are higher for the hotspots than some other items ($3 per day they are late), and similar to our other items, if they are not returned within a reasonable period of time, you may be charged for the equipment. This helps ensure that we will have equipment available for other patrons and can continue to provide this service to our users.

You will also be asked for a small deposit in order to check out a hotspot, and you must sign an agreement stating that you understand and agree to our hotspot checkout policy.

If you have library fines on your account, you may not be eligible to borrow a hotspot. If you do have library fines, however, you can pay those through our online catalog system at http://mcplib.org/catalog-search/.
