Mobile Hotspots

What is a Hotspot?

A mobile hotspot is a device that uses cellular data to connect an internet enabled device to the Internet. You can take laptops, tablets and more online without needing to be near WiFi.

Hotspot Procedures

  • Hotspots go out for two weeks at a time and there is a $2/day late fee.

  • Only one hotspot can be checked out to a family in a four week period.

  • While hotspots are available to all BCCLS cardholders, they must be checked out and returned in Ridgewood. 

  • Hotspots may be reserved up to four weeks in advance.

Please contact the Reference Desk at 201-670-5600 ext. 130 or ask@ridgewoodlibrary.org with any questions.
