Connect On-the-Go with Leon County Mobile Hotspots


Leon County Government is providing citizens with access to the internet wherever they are by making mobile wi-fi hotspots available at any County library for check out, free of charge.

The hotspots will let patrons access high-speed internet service at home or on-the-go. The devices will make it easy to browse the library’s robust online catalog, place a book on hold, or simply browse the internet and stay connected on social media.

In addition to browsing and selecting book options for check out, patrons may use the hotspots to download many of the library’s downloadable media options like:

OverDrive - Audiobooks, eBooks, and Video
RDdigital Magazines - Full-color digital magazines
RBdigital - Audiobooks and eBooks

The mobile hotspots address the changing needs of the community, providing access to dozens of online databases for research of all kinds with the click of a mouse or the tap of a finger. Mobile hotspots are perfect for internet use while on a trip or family vacation.

Mobile hotspots can be checked out for two weeks at a time to anyone with a Leon County library card and will provide up to 500mb of data a day. The devices are available at the Leroy Collins Leon County Main Library and all six branch library locations. For more information or to place a hotspot on hold, visit www.LeonCountyLibrary.org.

For more information, contact Scott Joyner, Administration and Operations Manager, Leroy Collins Leon County Public Library System at (850) 606-2665/ joyners@leoncountyfl.gov or Mathieu Cavell, Leon County Community and Media Relations, at (850) 606-5300 / cmr@LeonCountyFL.gov.
