Wi-Fi Hotspot

The library is now circulating a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot! This will allow patrons access to 4G internet.
-The hotspot checks out to Washington District Library adult cardholders only.
-The hotspot can only be checked out at the Main Library and must be returned to the front desk of the Main Library.
-It checks out for 1 week. It can be renewed for 1 additional week if it does not have holds on it.
-Holds can be placed by Washington District Library adult cardholders to be picked up at the Main Library. It will not be sent through delivery to other libraries.
This is a test program. If it is determined to go well, additional hotspots will be added, for both the Main and Branch libraries.

2019 Super Bowls

Every January, Friends of Washington Library (FOWL) sponsors the Super Bowls silent auction.  We ask patrons and businesses to donate any themed basket of items to display for two weeks.  These “bowls” make wonderful birthday gifts and Valentine’s surprises.  Popular themes are sports, food and wine packages, new baby baskets, quilting items, coffees and teas, spa products, reading-themed items, etc.

This year we encourage people to donate “services” like a year of homemade cookies, a day of yard work, etc.  As with all FOWL projects, all proceeds help the library to add to its collection and sponsor events.

Bring Super Bowls to the Main Library from January 14-20.  They will be displayed January 21-February 2.  Questions?  Call Sue at 444-7621.
