The Jackson County Public Library now helps library cardholders take the internet with them wherever they go by lending out free mobile hotspots.
Hotspots are available at the Seymour, Crothersville and Medora libraries. Five of the 10 available units can have holds placed on them, and the other five are first-come, first-served.
The compact and lightweight hotspots check out for seven days and cannot be renewed. They can have up to five devices connected to them at once and are limited to one per household. The private Wi-Fi network has a reliable high-speed LTE connection; however, there are some areas in the library district where connections can be lost.
Interested library district resident cardholders can ask about the hotspots at any of the library’s checkout desks.
