This is a free service that allows library cardholders who are 18 and older to check out a hotspot device and connect to the internet from almost anywhere. Hotspot lending programs are essential to bridging the digital divide, and provide internet access to families and households that lack these services. A hotspot is a small device you can use to connect a wireless enabled device, such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet, to the internet. Hotspots are portable, so you can connect your device to the internet almost anywhere you are!

The Wellton Library WiFi Hotspot Lending Program was supported with funds granted by the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Arizona Secretary of State, under the Library Services and Technology Act, which is administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. For more information, visit the Wellton Library at 28790 San Jose Avenue or call (928) 785-9575.

The Somerton Library WiFi Hotspot are part of Community Connect: Digital Access at Home, an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) and Capital One that offers cash grants to help rural libraries offer internet access and financial education for their patrons. For more information, visit the Somerton Library at 240 Canal Street or call (928) 373-6481.
