The Grand Saline Public Library is proud to announce that on Nov. 9, we are able to check out mobile hotspots to our library card holders.  Library card holders who are over the age of 18, are in good standing with the library, and have a valid ID will be able to check out a mobile hotspot.  Patrons will be able to check out the hotspots for up to one week.  They work off the Sprint network, so anywhere that gets Sprint service will be able to use the hotspots.   

Rural internet access is an issue that is a problem throughout the country.  Those living outside of the city limits in Van Zandt County, often only have satellite or mobile technology to access the internet.  More times than not these services are expensive and are a luxury item that many families cannot afford.  Due to a grant from the Ladd and Katherine Hancher Library Foundation, Grand Saline Public Library can now bring in internet to your home.
