No internet connection? No problem! Come check out one of our new mobile hotspots to access the internet anywhere* on any of your devices.

Here’s how it works…

Mobile hotspots allow you to share a wireless network connection with other devices so they can access the internet. Devices connect to the mobile hotspot using their Wi-Fi feature.

Patrons 18 and up with a valid Deerfield Library card can check out a mobile hotspot. You can borrow the hotspot for seven (7) days.

Why would I want to borrow one?

Mobile hotspots are a great resource for those without an internet connection. Whether you need to connect at home, or you’re traveling and need to connect in an airport or hotel room, the mobile hotspot is for you. Since mobile hotspots require a password to connect, they’re also a good tool for those that don’t want to use an unsecured public Wi-Fi connection (don’t worry – password included when you check out our hotspot!).

For more information, visit our Mobile Hotspots page. To learn how to connect, please refer to the printed instructions that come with the hotspot at checkout or watch our eTutor video below.

 

*Please note that a Sprint Cellular Network connection is required to use a Mobile HotSpot device.  Since the Mobile HotSpot device connects to the internet through a Cellular Network connection, it will not function if not connected to the Sprint Cellular Network. The Mobile HotSpot device should automatically connect to the Sprint Cellular Network connected with the device. If, however, you are outside of the carrier’s network the device will not connect and work.
