BDL's Wireless Cellular Hotspot Service

Starting spring 2021, BDL has cellular WiFi hotspots available for checkout at the library! Funding is provided in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library of Michigan.

  • Hotspots may be checked out by any BDL patrons with a valid library card, aged 18 and older, for a 2-week loan. Sorry, due to demand, there are no renewals possible.
  • Hotspots may be returned at the library or to a library dropbox. Overdue hotspots will be remotely disabled. Lost or damaged hotspots will result in a replacement cost of $79.99 and a $15 processing fee.
  • Hotspots use the Verizon Wireless cellular network, which has good coverage in Branch County. Check the map for other locations.
  • Reserve a hotspot from our catalog today!

Easy to Use!

  • Hotspot has two buttons, but you'll only need to use one: the power button!
  • Once the hotspot is on, connect to the WiFi on your device. The network to connect to is bdl-hotspot and the password is also bdl-hotspot.

  • Up to 10 devices can be connected to the hotspot at any 1 time. But keep in mind that all connected devices are sharing the same connection, so things may slow down the more devices you have on.
  • Hotspots provide unlimited data, though they will slow down after 25GB are used in a month. The hotspot screen shows the current data usage in the month.
  • Plug the hotspot in with the attached charging cable when the battery gets low.
  • Hold down the power button to turn the hotspot off.
