The Plaistow Public Library has a Wi-Fi Hotspot for loan to library card holders.  Take the internet with you wherever you go with a Wi-Fi Hotspot.

The Wi-Fi Hotspot is about the size of a deck of cards and can link up to 15 devices to the internet at the same time. The Wi-Fi Hotspot is portable and simple to use.

The Hotspot connects to T-Mobile’s cellular network, and by connecting your phone, tablet, or other wireless-enabled device to it, you can get online anywhere in T-Mobile’s coverage area – at home, in the car, or at the park.

In order to borrow the Hotspot, stop by the Plaistow Public Library with your library card.
  • The Hotspot may be borrowed only by Plaistow Library cardholders in good standing (no fines or billed items, and up-to-date contact information).
  • The Hotspot may be borrowed for a 1-week period. It may be renewed twice, but ONLY if no other patron is waiting for it.
  • The borrower is responsible for any loss or damage to the Hotspot. Replacement costs of up to $126 will be charged if the Hotspot or its components are returned with damage that renders it inoperable, or if they are not returned within 7 days of the due date.
Thank you to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring our Hotspot!

We now have instruction booklets for 1040, 1040EZ, and 1040A.

We have Earned Income Credit forms.
