Meriden Public Library Wi-Fi Hotspot Lending Agreement


Meriden Public Library lends Wi-Fi Hotspots to Meriden residents with a current Meriden Public Library card, ages 18 and above. As hotspots can serve multiple devices simultaneously, only one Hotspot may be checked out per household every 2 months for 21 days (3 weeks) and cannot be renewed. Holds are placed on hotspots through reference staff no sooner than one month after the last checkout.

The library reserves the right to refuse service to patrons who are repeatedly late in returning materials. The library is not responsible for any liability, damages or expense resulting from use or misuse of the device, connection of the device to other electronic devices, or data loss resulting from use of device.

Meriden Public Library Wi-Fi Hotspot Lending Agreement


  • I understand I must present my library card number to staff at the Reference Desk. Once I check out a  hotspot , it becomes my responsibility. I am responsible for damage, loss, or theft. I have a basic working knowledge of the device at the time of checkout. If any technical problems occur, I  will return the device immediately to the Reference Desk and alert them to problems found.
  • I understand devices must be returned to Reference Desk staff and should NEVER be returned in the book drop or to another library. If a device is returned in the book drop, I will be charged a $15 fine. If damage to the device is discovered, I understand that I will be charged a fee of $85 to replace the hotspot.
  • I understand and agree that an overdue charge of $5 per day, up to the full replacement cost of $85 will be charged for a hotspot that is not returned. I further understand and agree that I am responsible for full replacement cost if the device or any parts are lost, stolen, damaged, or otherwise not returned.
  • I understand that if the hotspot is not returned within the 21 day checkout period, the Wi-Fi access will be turned off and the hotspot will no longer be usable.

I understand and agree to these rules of use. By checking out a hotspot, I accept the above loan agreement and understand I am responsible for returning this equipment to Meriden Public Library in good working condition and free from damage.
