Besides borrowing books, movies, and music from the Saugus Public Library, patrons can also borrow the Internet. Really.
We now have three Verizon Wifi hotspots (MiFi 7730L) available for borrowing to Saugus Public Library patrons. A Wifi hotspot is a small, portable device that allow users to access the Internet via a WiFi signal virtually anywhere a cellular phone signal is available. You can connect to the Internet at the beach, in the park, in your car…pretty much anywhere you are when you need free Internet access. The hotspots provide up to 25GB of internet data for the borrower.
To check out a hotspot, a patron must be a Saugus resident, have a valid Saugus Public Library card, be a patron in good standing (no unpaid fees or overdue items); be at least 18‐years-old; and sign a Wifi checkout agreement. They can then log onto the hospot with their phone, laptop or other Wifi capable device by entering a password. Each hotspot can connect up to 8 devices to the Internet simultaneously. Hotspots can be checked out for up to three weeks (sorry, no renewals).
