A library card is the gateway to borrowing materials, placing holds, accessing computers and databases, downloading digital media, and even getting museum passes.

Hotspot Lending Program 

LaSalle Library adult cardholders will now be able to check out a Wi-Fi Hotspot! A Wi-Fi Hotspot is a device that lets users connect a wireless-enabled device, like a laptop, smartphone, or tablet to the Internet.  LaSalle Hotspots can support up to 10 devices, so families can get Internet access for each member’s unique interest, all at the same time. The Hotspot is also portable, so it can go almost anywhere, a convenience at home and away. LaSalle Hotspots are 4G LTE and are enabled by Sprint, providing outstanding coverage across Illinois and the nation.

Wi-Fi Hotspots are checked out for one week. Like any Library item, Hotspots are subject to a lending policy. Because of their construction, there are certain requirements, for example, Hotspots must be returned to the LaSalle Library adult circulation desk, not in the outdoor book drop.
