Mobile Hotspots & Tablets
Mobile hotspots and tablets are now available to borrow from the Pratt Library, allowing you to connect to your devices with access to free Wi-Fi. The devices will need to be picked up and returned at any of the Pratt Library Sidewalk Service locations.
Both mobile hotspots and tables are limited to one device each per account. There is a three week loan period, and they may be auto-renewed up to three times if there are no holds.
Using a mobile hotspot, you can connect up to 15 devices to free Wi-Fi from the comfort of your home. Users may borrow one device per account, and you must be 13 or older to borrow these devices.
Borrowers will receive one of two hotspot models, depending on availability.
Instructions will be provided with each device. Need help?

Returning a Device
All devices are borrowed for three weeks and can be renewed up to three times as long as there are no holds. Data will be turned off on overdue devices.
Devices must be returned in person and may be returned to any Pratt Library branch. Please make a Sidewalk Service appointment to return the device.
Lost mobile hotspots cost $103 (LINKZONE 2 model), $97 (T9 model), and tablets cost $100. Once returned, fees will be removed for long overdue devices. Damaged devices and missing parts will be charged accordingly. Missing or damaged USB cables and adapters cost $8 each.
