Watch a video about reliable health resources online to borrow an internet hotspot

PSA Provided by Stillwater Public Library

Community members who need access to the internet may now borrow an internet hotspot from the Stillwater Public Library, provided through a heath literacy grant from the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Institute for Museum and Library Services. To borrow a device, community members will need to view a 15 minute video about choosing credible and reliable health resources online. The short video provides information on reviewing websites’ creators, funding, quality of information, and privacy measures. In addition, borrowers will need to be 18 or older, have a library card and fill out an electronic device lending form.

Hotspots are an open wireless connection. The library’s hotspots, which are filtered to comply with the Child Internet Protection Act, may be borrowed for up to one week. Mobile tablets, also provided through an Oklahoma Department of Libraries grant, are available for check out as well. The devices are trackable and items not returned by their due date will be remotely disabled.

For more information, or to borrow a device, contact the Adult Services Help Desk in person or by phone at (405) 372-3633 x8106.
