A Denver Public Library pilot program that enables card-holders to check out portable WiFi hotspots is such a success that all devices were quickly spoken for and a wait list is building. Each device provides FREE unlimited high-speed internet access to low-income families and home-bound people who can’t easily reach a library. These portable hotspots allow customers without home Internet access to get online using any WiFi-enabled device (phone, tablet or laptop). The DPL has 50 of the devices — 10 each at the Montbello Branch Library, Athmar Park Branch Library, Ross-Barnum Branch Library, Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch Library and the Hadley Branch Library. Customers at those locations can check out the hotspots for up to three weeks and renew up three times if there are no other customer holds on the device. Click here for branch locations and hours.
