Almost 20% of Denver households still do not have broadband service at home, and low-income households and vulnerable groups are much less likely to have access. Access to computers and internet has always been a popular service at our libraries and with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, it continues to be a critical need in our communities.
To help address this need, on February 1, we added a large collection of Chromebooks and internet hotspots to our circulating collection. All of these items will check out for a 3-month period. Anyone with a full privilege, permanent DPL library card in good standing can borrow these items. You can place a request via our online catalog or by calling 720-865-1111. Our library buildings remain closed, but we offer curbside pickup (and returns) at all of our locations. These items cannot be returned via a book drop.
There are 3 options for checkout:
Many thanks to Denver Economic Development and Opportunity (DEDO) for helping to make this new collection possible!
