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!
