Residents with Limited Internet Access Have More Opportunities to Borrow a Laptop with a Data Plan
Hillsborough County, Fla. (May 26, 2023) - Hillsborough County Libraries are making it easier for families with limited or no internet access to get online at home with the Library Laptops for Families program.
In June, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Libraries is adding two new distribution sites in Wimauma and Town 'N Country as the County lends out a limited number of Chromebook laptop computers with data plans to families.
The public library system was awarded a grant through the Emergency Connectivity Fund program to offer the Chromebooks. The goal is to provide families with access to school support and job skills information. The computers include an unlimited data plan available until Dec. 31.
Residents who want to borrow a laptop should visit HCPLC.org/Chromebook from their phone or use a computer at their local library to schedule an appointment and review checkout guidelines.
The computers will be available at two library locations in early June, but residents should make an appointment first.
June 3 - Future Wimauma Library site, 5714 North St., Wimauma, FL, 33598
June 9, 10 - Town 'N Country Regional Public Library, 7606 Paula Dr., Tampa, FL, 33615
