Mobile HotsSpot Lending Program

The Library HotSpot Lending Program is designed to provide a means for library patrons to access high-speed Internet service.

The Library HotSpot Lending Program allows library card holders to access high-speed Internet service anywhere a T-Mobile cell phone signal can be received. This means a Library HotSpot will allow you to connect your devices (up to 15 at a time including desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc.) to INTERNET!

How to Borrow
  • Come to the Cambria County Library Reference Department with your library card and government issued I.D. Note: A valid library card is in your name with less than $5.00 in fines. If you do not have a library card start your registration through the catalog.
  • Must be an adult aged 18 or older.
  • You may have one (1) check-out per household.
  • Choose a Rental Time Frame. A minimum of 7 days up to 28 days usage, (no renewals). The device will not work beyond the chosen lease time.
  • First time rentals will be limited to 7 days and must be paid in cash. The HotSpot may be returned by end of next business day for full refund if T-Mobile service is insufficient. Visit opensignal.com to see how service is in your area.
  • Read and agree to T-Mobile’s acceptable use policy which prohibits pirating, illegal downloads, viewing child pornography, etc.
  • The HotSpot may only be used in the continental United States.
  • You can reserve a HotSpot through the Library online public access catalog (OPAC) the same way that library materials are placed on reserve. Access the Cambria County Library catalog at http://cambria.sparkpa.org. You will be contacted when a HotSpot is available.
  • The HotSpot must be returned to staff at the CCL Reference Department (do not put the device in a book drop).
  • After you return a HotSpot device, you can get back on the reserve list to rent again. The Library has limited HotSpots available, so reservations will be filled in the order they are received.
  • Late Fees: $2.00 per day late fee will be applied up to $50.00. After 7 days your Library account will be blocked and replacement fees will be assessed. The fees are outlined in your lease.
  • You are responsible for all materials associated with the Library Hotspot and will be expected to pay for the loss or damage to a device or components.
Usage Questions or Problems

The HotSpot will come with instructions. However, if you are in need of assistance, the reference staff is available in the Reference Department or by phoning 814-536-5131 ext. 210
