Borrow a mobile hotspot from Kuna Library
A mobile hotspot is a device you can use to connect a mobile-enabled device, such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet, to the internet.
The hotspot allows up to 15 devices to connect at a time and have unlimited data available.
The hotspot is portable, so you can connect your device almost wherever you are, as long as it is in the T-Mobile 4G network area.
Can I borrow a mobile hotspot?
Yes, but only if you are a current Kuna Library cardholder 18 years of age or older in good standing.
How many can I borrow at a time?
Due to limited quantities, only one device per household may be checked out at a time.
Can I place a reserve on a hotspot?
Yes, the item can be placed on hold through our library catalog.
How long can I check it out?
Hotspots check out for 7 days, with 1 renewal if available. They cannot be returned to the outside book drop they must be returned at the circulation desk.
What if I need help with the hotspot?
Instruction cards are included with the hotspots. If you need further assistance, please contact a library staff member. Hotspots can be charged by utilizing the power cord included, via USB port, or by using the wall charger.
What if I’m late returning the hotspot?
The Wi-Fi hotspot will be turned off remotely if it is not returned a week after the due date, and internet access will not be available.
