Internet on the Go

Internet on the Go at Lethbridge Public Library!

Lethbridge Public Library is excited to share that we are now offering Internet on the Go, a service that will connect you, wherever you are.

Internet on the Go is a way for you to borrow Chromebooks and/or MiFi hotspot devices from the Library in order to access the Internet on your own schedule, in your own home.

Both Chromebooks and hotspots are available for one-week loans. Items must be returned within 24 hours after the one-week checkout. These are not eligible for renewal. These items must be picked up and dropped off at the Computer Services Desk at the Main Branch and cannot be returned through the book drops.

For full details please review the "Internet on the Go" document below. To book your items please call our Computer Services line at 403-320-4102 or email lpl.infoservices@lethlib.ca.

Internet on the Go is funded in part through a generous donation by the Friends of the Lethbridge Public Library.

In addition, we are also offering Printing on the Go, where customers can email what they need printed to print@lethlib.ca. For full details please review the "Internet on the Go" document below.

*Costs for printing: for a limited time there is no fee for the first 5 pages, then $0.25/page. Credit or Debit only.
