Mobile Hotspots - Borrow the Internet from Your Library

Welcome to our Hotspot lending service. To further the Library’s mission to provide resources to serve the informational, educational, and recreational needs of the public, we are introducing our Hotspot lending program to make information – and more specifically the Internet – accessible to everyone. Auglaize County Libraries now offers mobile Hotspots available for borrowing. You may borrow the device to access the Internet for free at home, in the car, or anywhere else you receive a cellular signal! 

Digital e-Book Borrowing

Did you look at your tablet and say to yourself "How does this thing work". If you received a tablet or e-reader for Christmas or even if you already owned one and would like to know more about borrowing FREE e-books, audiobooks and more through the library then this class is exactly what you need. During the month of January, we will be doing lectures on the whole process of getting digital content through the Ohio Digital Library using the Overdrive App and all new Libby App. Each of our 6 libraries will be hosting classes on a new way to read books.
