Mobile Hotspots

In fulfilling the Center Moriches Free Public Library’s mission to access information, the Library lends mobile wireless Hotspots.

A WiFi hotspot is a device you can use to connect a mobile-enabled device, such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet, to the Internet. Mobile hotspots are portable and you can connect your device to places such as home or the park. Up to 10 devices can be connected using a Hotspot.

Hotspot checkout is limited to Center Moriches Library cardholders, 18 and older and have a valid library card in good standing.  Hotspots may be reserved in the Library catalog. When checking out a Hotspot, the cardholder agrees to the following terms and conditions set forth below.

Guidelines

  • Limit one per household.
  • Refrain from exposing Hotspot to extreme temperatures.
  • Modification of the hotspot is strictly prohibited, as is removing the back plate or removing the sim card.
  • Utilization of the Internet is intended only for lawful purposes.
  • Refrain from viewing pornographic visual materials or content that is considered obscene.
  • Refrain from engaging in any activity which is deliberately and maliciously offensive, libelous, slanderous or harassing.
  • Refrain from violating copyright laws or software licensing agreements.
  • Mobile Hotspots must be returned to the Circulation Desk and not placed in the book drop.

If the Mobile Hotspot is not returned to the Library within 7 days of the due date the Library will turn off the service and you will be billed for the entire item.  Patrons are responsible for returning the equipment in its entirety including the Hotspot, charging cord and case. Replacement costs may also be charged for equipment being returned in poor or unusable condition. Failure to return any component will result in the replacement cost for the missing item. Replacement fees are listed in the Library record and on the case during checkout.

The Library will not be responsible for Hotspot service that may be interrupted by emergencies, weather, power failures, computer hardware/software failures or Internet disconnections.

 

The patron agrees to these guidelines when they check out the device.
