Public library

Bossard Memorial Library created a Wi-Fi to Go program to provide high-speed, reliable connectivity to patrons without internet access. Demand for the hot spots exploded as the COVID-19 pandemic spread.


Connectivity for rural library patrons with limited home internet access

  • Challenges

    In Gallia County, Ohio, nearly 1 in 5 live below the poverty level. Bossard Memorial Library wanted to find a way to help families that lacked high-speed connectivity.

  • Results

    The Wi-Fi to Go program was an immediate hit with patrons. The board continues to support the addition of hot spots, as the library always has a waiting list of those who want to borrow the devices.

  • Solution

    Patrons borrow AT&T Wi-Fi hot spots at no charge for up to 2 weeks. The advanced wireless devices deliver free high-speed internet access almost anywhere library patrons need it. And the AT&T Premier portal streamlines management of the devices.
