In order to promote access to online resources, the Wixom Public Library offers mobile Wi‐Fi hotspots as a part of its circulating collection. The collection is meant for temporary uses such as vacations, education, employment, special projects, etc. Mobile hotspots are not intended to provide patrons with a permanent solution to Internet access. A mobile hotspot is a device that can be used anywhere to create a wireless network so patrons can connect any Wi-Fi-enabled mobile device, laptop, printer, digital camera or gaming device.
