Although the building is still closed to the public, the Camas Public Library wants to keep you connected. Beginning Thursday, October 1 you can check out a WiFi hotspot using your Library card.
These devices, which connect you to the Internet using a mobile network provided by the Library, are perfect for those in the community who don’t have access to the internet or could use extended coverage. Maybe you need a bit of extra internet coverage at home while your network is taxed with online meetings, virtual classrooms, or simply more people home at the same time. Maybe you’re just going on a road trip and could use the extra data to keep the family entertained. Whatever the reason, a WiFi hotspot may provide the boost you need.
"People are struggling right now to stay connected, in every sense of the word," said Connie Urquhart, Library Director. "Let us help with that. When you connect to the Library, you connect to your community".
The hotspots can be checked out for 3 weeks. Call the Library at 360-834-4692 or go to catalog.camaslibrary.org to reserve one today. Hotspots may be picked up through the Library's curbside service, Monday-Friday from 10-6pm.
The 15 devices were provided as part of a grant from the Washington State Library. They work in conjunction with the T-Mobile network, so the Library recommends checking T-Mobile's coverage map to view the signal strength in your area.
