What is a Library HotSpot?

Library HotSpots provide wireless internet connection to your smartphone, tablet, laptop, and any other Wi-Fi capable devices. You can connect multiple devices at a time, and access the internet anywhere within the Sprint network.

Internet access is not filtered or monitored by the library, and the library takes no responsibility for what you do when accessing the internet through the HotSpot.
