Internet to Go with the Bethlehem Public Library
When it comes to the free WiFi access at the library – you CAN take it with you. Bethlehem Public Library has started loaning out Pocket WiFi hotspots that allow users WiFi access within the Sprint network anywhere in the United States.
There is no denying that Internet access opens up new possibilities in education, entertainment and commerce. By providing “Internet to Go,” the library is making sure that access is available to everyone in the community. As WiFi usage at the library and the library-sponsored signal at the town pool continues to grow, adding portable hotspots to the catalog was the logical next step.
Patrons can use the device to stream music or their favorite shows or do some online research on their own time and in their own space -- there are no restrictions as long as Sprint service is available.
The devices can be found on the library’s Special Collections shelf near the Information Desk and can be borrowed for two weeks at a time. Bethlehem library cardholders may request the WiFi devices, but anyone in the Upper Hudson Library System can check out the ones on the shelves on a first-come basis. The hotspots must be returned to the Bethlehem library circulation desk. Check one out today, and get free library Internet to go.
