Hotspots & Chromebooks

Brooks Free Library has Chromebooks and WIFI Hotspots which you can borrow for free, on-the-go internet access. Our hotspots are provided by T-Mobile wireless and offer unlimited data for use on your personal devices. 

Chromebooks and Hotspots check out for one week on a first-come-first-serve basis and cannot be renewed. These devices cannot be returned and immediately checked out as there is a waiting period for staff to check the device. Hotspots cannot be double-borrowed between family members. In order to borrow a hotspot, you must:

  • Have an Adult CLAMS card
  • Be a Harwich resident or have a Harwich address on your card
  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Have less than $25 in fines on your card, and no billed items
  • Agree to the Lending Agreement

You may ask for a copy of the lending agreement if desired

If items are not returned on their due date, we reserve the right to block service access. 

This is not meant to be a permanent solution for internet access. If you require more internet access or computer use, the library offers free WIFI 24/7 that can be accessed inside and outside during open hours and in our parking lot when we are closed. Any WIFI that starts with Brooks without a password is available. We also have public computers and in-house Chromebooks if needed.

To find out more about borrowing a hotspot, please see a librarian at the Circulation Desk.
