Laptops & Mobile Hotspots

New in 2023
To better suit the needs of our patrons, laptops and hotspots can now be checked out separately, rather than bundled together as a kit.

Samuels Public Library is pleased to provide laptops and mobile hotspots to give our patrons computer and internet access from home!

What is a mobile hotspot?

Mobile hotspots are portable devices that allow you to connect to wireless internet on the go. These hotspots rely on T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network to provide service, so some areas may have better coverage and connection speed than others - the library is unable to guarantee you will have service in your area.

How Can I Check One Out?

Laptops and hotspots can be checked out at the Circulation Desk.

  • Must be over 18 and a resident of Warren County to checkout
  • 1 laptop and 1 hotspot per household
  • 2-week loan period
  • Holds allowed
  • Devices cannot be renewed

To prevent damage, do not place devices in book drop upon return - please bring back to Circulation Desk for checkin.

Included with Each Device

  • 1 Charger
  • 1 Instruction Sheet (How to Use)

Laptop Software Information

  • Windows 10 Home Edition
  • Microsoft Office Standard 2019
  • Internet Browsers - Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge

Each laptop is configured to reset itself to its original state every time it is shutdown. ANYTHING YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED OR FILES YOU HAVE CREATED WILL BE ERASED AND CANNOT BE RECOVERED. Before shutting down the laptop, you will need to save any documents you wish to keep to your own personal flash drive, external hard drive, or to an online service such as Google Drive.

The Samuels Public Library new Laptop Hotspot Lending Program is made possible in part through generous support from Walmart Community Grants and the Truist Foundation.
