Mobile Wi-Fi hotspots now available through Seattle Public Library

by | May 18, 2015

This morning the City of Seattle and Seattle Public Library officials formally kicked off a program to loan mobile Wi-Fi hotspots to library cardholders. The program was made possible by a grant from Google and is available through all library branches, including the Greenwood Library at 8016 Greenwood Ave. N.

More than 90,000 Seattle residents lack Internet access at home. Starting Monday, thanks to a grant from Google, residents with a Library card can reserve a mobile Wi-Fi device to give them broadband access wherever they need it – home, work or out in the community. With this program, the Library hopes to give some of the most underserved in the city a powerful way to connect to the Internet – access that helps children succeed in school, and provides adults with critical information on health, employment, education and more.
