The Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library now offers Franklin T9 T-Mobile hotspots for checkout. The hotspots provide access to a free and reliable internet connection for students, parents, teachers and anyone working or studying remotely. The portable hotspots connect up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices such as laptops, tablets or smart phones to a 4G LTE network at one time.
Hotspots are available for checkout at the Circulation Desk by patrons with a library card in good standing who are at least 18 years old. Patrons must sign a user agreement when they first check out the hotspot. The lending period is three weeks (21 days). If hotspots are not returned on time, service will be automatically shut down. Patrons are responsible for replacement costs for any damage or loss. The hotspots are made possible by funding from the California State Library.
"This is an amazing opportunity for the library to make new technologies accessible to everyone regardless of income level," said City Librarian Diana Garcia. “With the proliferation of distance learning and remote work in the past year, these hotspots will be a valued addition to the library’s services and programs.”
The Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library is the city’s public library located at 318 S. Ramona Avenue, Monterey Park, CA 91754. Library hours are Tuesday to Saturday 1-5 p.m. For more City of Monterey Park news and information, please visit the city website at www.montereypark.ca.gov.
