Attention OverDrive users! OverDrive has phased out the "OverDrive" smartphone app. If you use the OverDrive app, you will need to switch to the Libby app, which is already available.
Follow the instructions below to start using Libby and feel free to call us or visit us at the library for help with the transition.
The Beaumont Library is now lending mobile hotspots and Chromebooks to the public. Cardholders will be able to check out these technology items for up to two weeks, or for a three-day rapid check out period intended for time-sensitive situations.
The new program is funded through the California State Library by a grant paid for by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, passed to assist those impacted by Covid-19 and is intended to provide connectivity to people without Internet access at home.
Three hotspots and five Chromebooks are available for a two-week check out period, while three Chromebooks and two Chromebook/hotspot bundles are reserved for rapid-return, three-day check out periods.
Patrons must to come to the library to check out the items they want after signing a waiver agreement. All of the technology hardware will be lent on a first-come-first-serve basis with no holds allowed, and there is a 24-hour waiting period after returning items before a patron can check out a Chromebook and/or hotspot again.
All items come in protective cases and to insure their safety must be returned in the library, not in the library's outside book drops.
