The Nutley Public Library is pleased to loan free Mobile WiFi Hotspot Kits (hotspots) to Nutley Township resident card holders to increase their access to the Internet and the library’s many digital resources. A mobile WiFi Hotspot is a small device you can use to connect a wireless enabled device, such as a laptop, smartphone, tablet or gaming console to the Internet. Mobile WiFi HotSpots are portable, so you can connect your device almost wherever you go, whether at home, on business, in the park or on vacation.
 
The loaning of Mobile WiFi Hotspots is an extension to the free WiFi service already available at the Nutley Public Library. This is part of a growing trend happening nationally where public libraries are expanding their services and offering items beyond the traditional selection of books for borrowing. Mobile WiFi Hotspots also play a critical role in communities, often providing access for those who do not have WiFi service, further allowing patrons to access and perform critically needed web based tasks from home. 
 
There are a total of five Mobile Wifi Hotspots for borrowing. After agreeing to the Mobile WiFi Hotspot Lending Program Policy and filling out a loan form, Nutley resident card holders ages eighteen and older with library cards in good standing can borrow a hotspot at the Circulation Desk. Hotspots are available on a first-come, first-served basis and the loan limit is one hotspot device per household at any given time. The lending period is fourteen days and the hotspot cannot be renewed or reserved.
