Mobile Hotspots Available at County Libraries

Montgomery County Public Libraries announced the launch of “Internet to Go,” its mobile hotspot lending program for the public. The county libraries have 250 Verizon MiFi Mobile hotspots that can be borrowed.

“We know that the digital divide affects many of our County residents each day, and we are very pleased to begin this program,” said MCPL Director Anita Vassallo.  “This will make it possible for us to support County residents who may be working remotely, helping their children navigate online learning, applying online for jobs and benefits, and completing other important and necessary tasks online.”

Library cardholders in good standing, who are 14 years and older, are eligible to checkout a mobile hotspot for two weeks. They cannot be renewed. If not returned by the due due date, the fine is $1 per day to a maximum of $15.

Customers may place a hold on a hotspot at the library’s website or by calling Ask-A-Librarian, at 240-777-0001.
