As any rural resident knows, finding an adequate wireless internet connection is often a struggle. Well now, in addition to being able to come into the Princeton Public Library to use their computers or access their free wireless connection, you can also check out one of their five new Hotspot Wi-Fi devices to take home.
The borrower must be a library card holder, 18 or older, and in good standing with the library. First-time users must sign an acknowledgement form at the circulation desk prior to checkout. The device can only be checked out for seven days, and will not be renewable.
When checking out the Hotspot, the borrower will receive the device, a power cord, an instruction manual, and a carrying case. All items must be returned at the same time to the front desk during business hours in order to avoid a late fee. They cannot be returned using the drop box locations.
The overdue fine is $5 per day. Failure to return the Hotspot and accessories within four weeks after the original due date will result in a charge to the cardholder’s account of $100 with a $15 additional charge for the adapter. Please hand the case and its contents directly to a library staff member.
The user assumes responsibility for the cost of repair or replacement in the event that Wi-Fi Hotspot or its accessories are lost, stolen or damaged.
