We suggest calling (413) 662-3133 for confirmation before you come to pick up print outs. While most show up in our print system within minutes, occasionally they will take more than an hour to transmit.
The MBLC has distributed over 3000 hotspots to approximately 220 public libraries for loan to library users. Funded through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), the hotspot lending program focuses on IMLS' primary goal for these funds, digital inclusion.
TURN ON: Press and hold power button (located on the long side of the device under the LCD screen) for 3 seconds. The screen will say “Welcome.” Wait about 10 seconds for it to warm up.
Please fully charge the hotspot before returning it.
