Circulating Technology

The library is proud to offer a collection of circulating technological devices. All you need is a Benbrook library card to check out and take home a Wi-Fi hotspot, laptop computer, or Roku Streaming Stick.

 

Wi-Fi Hotspots

Wi-Fi hotspots enable the internet to come home with you!  Connect up to 10 devices to one hotspot.  The password will be labeled on the device, so it is just a matter of finding the hotspot with your tablet or phone, typing in the password, and then enjoy your favorite internet activities.  We will have twenty in our collection, and each device has unlimited data, so no more worries about data usage!

 

2-in-1 Laptops

Our 2 in 1 laptop computers feature a hinge that enables them to be converted into a tablet. The tablet mode features a touch screen that allows you to easily navigate by swiping and tapping. The computers are loaded with Open Office to allow for work with word processing, spreadsheets, and slideshow presentations and feature a camera for video conferencing or chatting. To access the internet, an internet  connection is required. Check out a laptop and a Wi-Fi hotspot together to give yourself internet access anywhere!
