Library HotSpot

Service to all Library HotSpots loaned in 2021 or earlier is ending on July 1, 2022. Devices will no longer connect to the internet after that date. 

These hotspots do not need to be returned to the library. The item will be removed from your library card account. If you still see the item listed in your library account by July 15, please reach out to us at

If you need internet access during the summer, check out the following resources: 

As always, all NYPL locations offer free wireless access (Wi-Fi) in public areas when the libraries are open. More information on our Computers, Internet and Wireless Access page. 

Feel free to reach out to Ask NYPL with any questions.
