Chromebooks and Hotspots and Lending...OH MY!
Updated: Dec 4, 2020
Did you know that the library has Google Chromebooks and Mobile Hotspots available to be checked out by our patrons?
This past May, the library applied for and received a grant from the CARES legislation. This funding will serve to make improvements to the library's current internet services, as well as allowing the library to purchase 5 Google Chromebooks and 5 Mobile Hotspots to lend to our patrons. The improvements to our service includes WiFi connectivity from anywhere on the library grounds, even if the library is closed. Our new WiFi is stjamespublic.mo and can be accessed from the library yard or from any of the surrounding streets. There is no password and WiFi is left on at all times.
These devices do have special checkout requirements; please download the attached PDFs for details on how to borrow. If you are unable to access the attached file, please contact us at the library, and we'll be happy to send you the information. If you have a student who is quarantined, yet you've reached your data limit for the month, please contact us today. We are working with families inside the school district every way we can to ensure that the students in our community are able to continue to be educated, no matter where they are!
As always, we are so thankful to our great community for the support we continue to receive at the library. Our patrons make us happy to serve! <3
