All three branches of the Hamden Public Library now have mobile hotspots available for lending. A WiFi hotspot is a device you can use to connect a mobile-enabled device, such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet, to the Internet. The hotspot is portable, so you can connect your device almost wherever you are, like at home, on the bus or in the park.
The Miller Library has set up our Kwikboost charging station outside the main entrance of the library at 2901 Dixwell Avenue. The station can charge up to 8 phones at a time at full speed and supports most major phones including iPhones, Android, Blackberry and Windows.
