1. WiFi Hotspot Circulation Policy

In order to check out a WiFi Hotspot, the borrower must be at least 18 years of age and have signed a “WiFi Hotspot Borrowing Agreement” assuming financial and safety responsibilities for lost or damaged equipment and /or owners’ property. The library will have holdable and Lucky Day WiFi Hotspots to check out.  Due to high demand, inquiries about availability must be made in person and we ask households to wait 48 hours to re-check out a WiFi hotspot. There will be a limit of six (6) checkouts per household per year on KJML hotspots.  The device cannot be returned in the book drop and can only be returned to the circulation desk of the KJM Library. Patrons who return WiFi Hot Spots in the book drop will be assessed a $10.00 fee.

Loan Period: Seven (7) days with no renewal

Late Fee: $2 per/day

Patrons are responsible for any damage, loss, or theft of the WiFi Hotspot while it is checked out to them. Replacement costs are as follows:

WiFi Hotspot: $60.00                                                 Charging Adapter: $5.00

WiFi Hotspot Battery: $20.00                                    Charging Cable: $5.00

Connection Guide: $1.00                                            Carrying Case: $5.00

WiFi Hotspot Borrowing Agreement

By checking out the WiFi Hotspot you are assuming responsibility for any damage, loss, or theft of the device or your own property while it is checked out to you. Please DO NOT USE while charging the unit. There have been reports of the battery becoming swollen and inoperable. Please make sure to review the Sprint’s ZTE Warp Connect User/Connection Guide. You will be responsible for the entire replacement cost of the device and/or the accessories. You must be at least 18 years old in order to borrow the WiFi Hotspot and your account must be in good standing (no fines/fees in excess of $10.00). I acknowledge and expressly assume the risks of borrowing a hotspot from the Karl Junginger Memorial Library with full understanding of such potential risks and expressly waive, release and discharge Waukesha County, Bridges library System, Karl Junginger Memorial Library, Waterloo Municipality and each of their respective officers, agents and employees (“Releases”) from any and all claims, costs, expenses or liabilities (including those involving death, disability, personal injury or property damage) arising out of or relating to my borrowing a hotspot whether caused, in whole or in part, by the sole or concurrent negligence (whether active or passive) or wrongdoing, strict liability or fault of the Releasees or otherwise (“Claims”).
