WiFi Hotspot Lending

Need to access free, unlimited high-speed internet from almost anywhere? Patrons of the Cleveland Public Library (CPL) and select branches of Cuyahoga County Public Library (CCPL) can now use their library card to check out a WiFi hotspot just like a book.

The portable hotspots allow cardholders without home internet access to easily get online from almost anywhere using a WiFi-enabled device such as a phone, tablet or laptop.

Please check with your local CPL or CCPL branch for details and for participation guidelines.
