Welcome to the Marfa Public Library

Check out our new hotspots!

Exciting news -- Marfa Public Library now has a hotspot lending program. If you do not have access to the Internet in your home, this program allows library patrons 18 and up to check out one of ten free hotspots available at the front desk.

Now you can use your Marfa Library card to check out a mobile hotspot device, and use the device to surf the Internet. These pocket-sized devices are easy to use and can connect up to eight devices, such as your smart phone, laptop, and tablet, to cellular Internet using T-Mobile’s network. The device and service are already paid for—simply ask your librarian about checking it out. 

This program is made possible with the support of the Tocker Foundation, the Central Texas Library System, Inc., Austin, the Technology & Information Policy Institute (TIPI) at The University of Texas at Austin, and Austin Free-Net.
