Adopted by the Eagle Public Library Board of Trustees, September 20, 2017
Reviewed and Reaffirmed, March 17, 2021
In an effort to increase digital access for area residents, mobile hotspots are available to borrow from the Eagle Public Library.
Hotspot Borrowing Guidelines
The hotspots allow up to 10 devices to connect at a time with unlimited data. Hotspots are portable and work within the T-Mobile 3G or 4G network area.
Hotspots are available to any Treasure Valley LYNX! Consortium Library account holder, 18 years or older, with an account in good standing (i.e. library record is not blocked due to unpaid fees or lost materials in excess of $10). Hotspot devices:
- are limited to one device per household due to demand,
- may be reserved,
- may be checked out for 14 days,
- may not be renewed, and
- accrue fines at $5.00 per day.
Hotspots must be returned to the Eagle Public Library checkout desks during regular business hours. Hotspots may not be returned in Eagle Public Library’s bookdrops nor may they be returned to other LYNX! Consortium Libraries. Failure to return the device to the checkout desk will result in denial of future electronic device borrowing privileges. If not returned when due, the WiFi hotspot will be turned off remotely if it is not returned on the due date, and Internet access will not be available. If the hotspot is lost or damaged, please contact library immediately. The replacement fee is the market value cost to replace the hotspot.
The Eagle Public Library is not responsible for any damage done to your personal equipment.
