Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot Policy

RCL's policy on lending wi-fi hotspots

Can’t get internet service at home? Just moved and the internet isn’t hooked up yet? Need to stay connected on your next roadtrip? Check out a mobile wi-fi hotspot at the Reeves County Library!

The Reeves County Library (RCL) loans free mobile wi-fi hotspots to patrons to increase their access to the internet and other digital resources. RCL is not responsible for any information a patron accesses using a wi-fi hotspot nor any actions they take while online. Using the hotspot to access any online content that is determined to be illegal or obscene according to federal, state, or municipal law will result in revocation of hotspot borrowing privileges and potentially criminal prosecution.

  • Be age 18 or older
  • Patron must be in good standing, with no lost items on their library card and $0.00 in current fines

  • Hotspot checkout is limited to one per household
  • The lending and internet access period is 7 days, with no renewals. After the hotspot has been late for 24 hours, service will be disabled.
