Did you know that the Bigelow Free Public Library has Wi-Fi hotspots for Clinton residents to borrow with their library card? Are you going on vacation where the Wi-Fi might be sketchy (or non-existent)? Borrow a hotspot!To check availability, call us at 978-365-4160.
What is a hotspot?Put simply, a portable hotspot taps into 4G cellular networks, just like a smartphone does. Once it’s zeroed in on cellular data connection (using either the T-Mobile or Sprint network, depending on which hotspot you borrow), a mobile hotspot can share that connection via Wi-Fi with nearby smartphones, laptops, tablets, or anything that can connect to a Wi-Fi network.
Please see our new Hot Spot Lending & Circulation Policy for more details.
