INTERNET HOTSPOT BORROWING POLICY
Borrowing a Hotspot Device: Borrower must have a regular Wasatch County Library card and photo identification. The borrower must be at least 18 years of age or have permission from a parent or guardian to borrow a hotspot. The borrower (parent or guardian if borrower is under 18 years of age) must sign the Hotspot User Agreement form accepting financial responsibility for damage or loss of a hotspot device. Library patrons may borrow one hotspot at a time due to limited availability. There is also a checkout limit of one hotspot per household at a time.
Checkout Period & Renewals: The checkout period for a Hotspot is seven days. Renewal periods shall be for the same amount of time as the original check out. The item may be renewed to the same patron twice after the initial loan period. As a convenience to borrowers, items checked out will be automatically renewed twice if nobody is waiting for the Hotspot device.
Overdue Hotspot: If a Hotspot is more than 3 days overdue, service to the Hotspot will be cancelled. The replacement cost will be charged to the patron's account six weeks after the due date. The replacement amount will be waived if the Hotspot is returned in good working condition within six weeks of the due date.
Lost or Damaged Hotspots, Charger or Case: In the event the Internet Hotspot device, the charger and cables, or the carrying case is lost or damaged beyond reasonable wear and tear, the replacement cost will be charged to the patron's account as follows: Device $100.00, charger and cable $10, carrying case $15.
Coverage & Service: The Wasatch County Library is not responsible for the lack of coverage and signal strength of the Hotspot. Coverage levels vary depending on the area. The Library is not responsible for any activity performed while using the Hotspot and any damages to a personal device that may result from using the device.

This device allows you to connect WiFi-enabled devices (laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc.) to the internet. The hotspot is portable so you can connect from almost anywhere: at home, in the park, etc. The internet connection is an extension of the Wasatch County Library wireless network.
