Five Kent District Library branches now offer circulating hot spots. Adult KDL cardholders can check out a Verizon Jetpack 4G LTE for up to 3 weeks at the following branches: Alto, Englehardt (Lowell), Nelson Township/Sand Lake, Spencer Township and Tyrone Township.
All 18 KDL branches recently started offering circulating iPads, and this is a great enhancement to that service. Patrons can place a hold on a hot spot using the KDL catalog; however, the hot spots will not travel in delivery to other branches for pick-up. Hot spots can be renewed if there are no holds on the item.
“With so much of everyday life – from plane tickets to product rebates – tied to the Internet, offering this service will make it easier for patrons who live in areas with poor access to get tasks done,” said Sandy Graham, Branch Manager of the Alto Branch. “Along with that, this device is so easy and convenient to use, it will give users the confidence to independently increase their digital skills.”
For more information, please call 616-784-2007 or visit a participating branch.
