Winter Newsletter 2021-22

Director’s Corner It is a New Year with new opportunities for you! Whether 2021 was a year of positives or a year with fewer positives, it is time to hit reset and make the New Year GREAT. Speaking of new opportunities, did you know the library launched mobile hotspot circulation in late 2021? You now can take home the internet. Currently, 30 T-Mobile hotspots are going home with patrons via an active library card. Why T-Mobile? Well, currently T-Mobile is the only provider to offer non-throttled hotspots in a shared setting. This means that whether you borrow a hotspot at the beginning of the month or the end, you have the same download and upload speed. Please keep in mind that if you do not have access to a provider tower in your area, the mobile hotspot will not be able to make a connection for you. Like many of you, we look forward to more access in Coshocton County. We are hopeful that in the near future mobile hotspots will be accessible by all!
