Hotspots

Wi-Fi hotspot lending

Check out the internet

Cuyahoga County Public Library cardholders can access free, unlimited high-speed internet from almost anywhere through our Wi-Fi hotspot lending program.

Portable hotspots allow library cardholders who do not have home internet access to easily get online from almost anywhere using a Wi-Fi-enabled device such as a phone, tablet or laptop. Hotspots are available to check out from select Cuyahoga County Public Library branches, just like a book or DVD.

No library card? No problem. Get one now.
