Has the Mississauga Library received new technology?

The Mississauga Library has launched two new pilot platforms: Chromebooks and Wi-Fi hotspots. Both platforms will give you better access to technology and the internet.

Chromebooks (Available only at Cooksville, Malton and Sheridan libraries)

A Chromebook is a laptop that runs Chrome OS as its operating system. These laptops are designed to be primarily used while you’re connected to the internet. You can run a variety of applications offline.

You can use the Library’s Chromebooks anywhere inside the library up until it closes, but they cannot be removed from the building or reserved. To borrow a Chromebook, make sure you have a valid youth or adult library card.

Hotspots (Available only at Cooksville library)

The Library has 10 hotspots devices available to improve access to Wi-Fi and provide a new way for you to access the internet. As a pilot, you can only find hotspots at Cooksville library for a seven-day loan period. Similar to a Wi-Fi network, you can use hotspots at home, work or on the go to connect any device to the internet.

If you’ve got a question about the City, we want to hear from you!
