Customers must read and sign an agreement before they check out the MiFi30 kit. They must also participate in some one-on-one training so that they know how to use the MiFi and Chromebook. Instructions are included in the kit. The library will also host monthly workshops for additional technical training. Click here to see schedule and register.
MiFi30 kits are available at all BCLS locations including the bookmobile. Customers can place a hold on the MiFi30 kit and it will be sent to the library they designate for pickup.

Jetpacks can be used for multiple devices, and should only be used domestically (within the United States). Network connection strength depends on user’s location. JetPacks can charge through an outlet or through the Chromebook. The battery can last up to 20 hours, depending on the type of use.
Samsung Chromebook 2:
Ending your session, closing the device, or turning off the Chromebook removes any data, saved pages, passwords, and changes to settings. If you do not have a Google account, you may use a flashdrive to store and share files. Not all sites will be Chrome compatible. The Chromebook will go into sleep mode after 120 minutes. The average battery life is 8 hours, depending on the type of use.
MiFi30 kits MUST be returned to the front desk — Do not return kits to bookdrops!
If the kit is overdue, the Jetpack will not work at all, and the Chromebook will only have access to a specific library webpage for five-minute intervals. If you require further assistance, please contact your local Berkeley County Library here.
