Need a wireless internet connection? Check out one of the Augusta County Library’s new mobile hotspots.

Hotspots may be picked up any ACL location (except for Deerfield, which remains closed to the public), and they must be returned to an ACL location. Availability may be checked via the online catalog (, or by calling your desired ACL location.

Most of these hotspots use the Sprint/T-Mobile network, but there are two that use Verizon, so coverage will depend upon the provider.
