You better believe the Victoria Public Library is the hottest spot in Victoria!  Have you seen their summer lineup yet? Tons of things for kids, teens, and adults to do right here at our very own VPL, and now they're hotter than ever! The Victoria Public Library now offers additional HOT SPOTS for library patrons, and you can take them home! 

Thanks to the government-funded grant, CARES Act, the hotspot program is one of three new services being funded by a $24,985 grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.

VPL demonstrated accessibility needs that were heightened by the COVID-19 pandemic and proposed projects to meet these needs. The VPL can now offer residents who rely on the Victoria Public Library for internet service the opportunity to take the internet home with them which began on Monday when VPL launched its new mobile hotspot checkout program!

The grant funding will allow the library to purchase a total of 10 mobile hotspots for checkout.

But that's not all.

The library also took the community's interest to heart when they asked for a flexible private meeting space. The former magazine room will be getting a serious makeover! The new meeting room will be equipped to host high-tech or remote functions such as classes, webinars and conference calls. Library staff are in the process of purchasing furniture and equipment for the meeting room, and the renovation is expected to begin in April and finish by the end of the summer.

If you need a hot spot, or a hot spot to meet clients and associates, you've got to check out the hottest spot in Victoria, the Victoria Public Library!
