BORROW THE INTERNET
Do you have trouble accessing the internet from home? Borrow the Internet from the Huron County Library!
The Library’s Wi-Fi hubs provide unlimited, no-charge Internet access to a variety of Wi-Fi enabled devices through the cellular network. Up to 10 devices can be connected at one time. If you don’t have a Wi-Fi enabled device, an ethernet cord is also supplied in the kit. These devices will work anywhere there is cellular service. Huron County Library cannot guarantee connectivity and speed may vary.
Who can borrow the internet hubs?
Any Huron County Library card holder who is 18 years and older. Only one hub per household can be checked at a time.
All users must abide by Huron County Library’s Internet Services Policy. All users must have their library account in good standing. No personal data will be stored on the hub and internet activity will not be monitored.
What is the hub's service coverage?
Service is available anywhere in Canada with cellular service. International service is not available.
How long is the checkout period?
WiFi Hubs may be borrowed for 1 week and may be placed on hold. The hub will be held for pickup at your local branch for 14 days; if not picked up within that timeframe, the hub will move on to the next person on the waitlist. The hub must be returned directly to library staff during regular branch hours. Hubs may be renewed up to 2 times if there is no waitlist. Hubs are not to be returned in a library book drop.
What happens to overdue hubs?
While no fines will be added on overdue internet hubs, devices will be deactivated if not returned by due date.
What if the hub gets lost or damaged?
Patrons will be charged $100 for lost or damaged devices. Patrons may also be responsible for the replacement value of lost cables.
