Hotspot Checkout

Durham County Library patrons can borrow mobile hotspots to take the internet wherever they go.

A hotspot is a portable device that provides Wi-Fi internet access to computers, phones, or tablets. They connect to 4G LTE speeds through a cellular network, and DCo Library hotspots come with unlimited data. So, if you don’t have internet at home or want a reliable internet connection for your devices on vacation, hotspots are a great option.
