A mobile hotspot is a small box that provides wireless Internet that you can connect to with a mobile device, like a smartphone, tablet, or laptop computer. Similar to a data plan for a cell phone, as long as the hotspot can connect to the Internet service provider’s cell tower, users can access the Internet.
These mobile hotspots are a great option for Teaneck residents who are traveling, or do not have reliable Internet at home.
Eligibility: To be eligible to borrow a mobile hotspot, patrons must be a Teaneck resident, 18 years or older, with a valid Teaneck Public Library card in good standing.
Availability: Hotspots are available at the downstairs service desk on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations can be made ahead of time.
Loan Period: Hotspots are checked out for a two-week period (no renewals). Once you have checked out a hotspot, you must wait two weeks before you can check out a hotspot again.
Returns: Hotspots may be returned at the Teaneck Library ONLY (Can be returned in the Media Drop but NOT the Book Return).
Late Fines: There will be a $5.00 per day charge if the hotspot is returned late.
Lost or damaged hotspot: The charge for a lost hotspot is $100. The charge for a damaged hotspot will be determined by the Library Director.
