A Hot Spot provides a wireless internet access point to Wi-Fi enabled devices such as tablets, smartphones, and laptops, etc. Our hot spots are part of the Technology Collection in our Library of Things. You can reserve them in the Library Catalog.
Hot Spots are portable once the battery is charged and only require recharging every few hours (duration of battery life varies depending on service signal strength, number of devices connected, etc.). Hot Spots can be used in your home, in a car, or anywhere service is available.
Our Hot Spots are from Mobile Beacon. Mobile Beacon’s internet service is provided on Sprint’s 4G/5G LTE network. Check Sprint’s 4G/5G LTE coverage.
Hot Spots can be checked out for three weeks with two renewals. Patrons may place a Hot Spot on hold for pickup at Lynnfield Library only. Hot Spot must be picked up and returned inside the Lynnfield Library and NOT in the outdoor drop box. One Hot Spot may be borrowed per library card.
All parts of the Hot Spot Kit must be returned in the case; the Kit will remain checked out to the patron until all parts are returned. Replacement Hot Spots will not be accepted. Patrons will be responsible for individual items from the Kit if they are lost, stolen, or damaged; the replacement cost will vary depending on the cost of the items.
