Laptop and Hotspot Loans
Do you know anyone without internet or a computer at home who would benefit from borrowing them—to apply for jobs, access homeschooling resources, or simply stay connected to information? Residents can now check out a kit with a Chromebook and wireless hotspot to access the internet (plus chargers) inside a handy carrying case from any Sidewalk Service location, including the Pico Rivera Library and Rivera Library. Please call either library to place a hold on a Laptop & Hotspot Loan Kit. Any adult with a regular library card can borrow a kit for three weeks, with the option to renew, if available.
