The Peñitas Public Library now loans out WIFI / HotSpots!!

Peñitas is now Implementing a Mobile Hotspot Lending Program at your library offers up a world of possibilities for you.
Enabling patrons to take the Internet home offers a number of unique benefits such as:

Bridging the Digital Divide
 Lessening the homework gap for children
 Providing internet options to rural areas with poor or no coverage
 Offering connectivity to financially disadvantaged patrons
 Helping individuals with employment opportunities
 Accessing health information, especially for seniors
 Offering connectivity at community wide events
 Allowing individuals living with disabilities the option to access the Internet from the comfort of home

By loaning out the Internet, just like a book, your Library can provide its patrons with 24/7 access to Internet. In an increasingly interconnected world, the Internet is vital in day to day life. Offering mobile hotspot devices to your patrons will help meet their information needs in new and exciting ways.
* Must have a Peñitas Library Card, valid picture ID and be 18 or older
