OUr library gets the invoice addressed to Library, but we send it to the town, who actually writes the check. I assume that we, the library, can apply and not the town?

Can the MBLC do devices and hotspots then?

T-Mobile provides the devices for free, Library pays monthly usage (about $35 per device)

So this is what the survey for. the MBLC? You just made my day. The smaller library this was overwhelming, so I was just beginning to think I couldn't make it all happen. So hot spots only would be our starting point!
