The Uxbridge Free Public Library has partnered with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) to bring mobile hotspots to our community. A hotspot provides on-the-go Wi-Fi access for up to 10 devices using the T-Mobile network. The hotspots were funded by an American Rescue Plan Act grant administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

This Hotspot Program advances the Library’s vision to provide technology that extends and enhances the patron experience and its goal to increase access to the latest innovations in technology. This Hotspot Program supports the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners’ goal to Advance Equitable Access to Resources by promoting “excellent connectivity and technology infrastructure, training, and support frameworks to equitably meet the needs of library users in Massachusetts” and the Institute of Museum and Library Services’ American Rescue Plan Act Objective 1.1 to advance digital inclusion.

  • If the hotspot is not returned within 3 days after the due date, service will be turned off and the hotspot will become unusable
