Internet to Go

Borrow a Telus Smart Hub from the Library!

Through a generous donation from Telus, High River Library is able to offer you Internet service wherever you are. We now have four ZTE Smart Hubs (with data included) for loan.

How it works

The loan period for a Smart Hub is 2 weeks. You can reserve via our website using your TRACpac account or by calling the library at 403-652-2917. Your library account must be in good standing and you must be 16 or older. Only one Smart Hub can be checked out to a card at any time.

Picking Up and Returning the Smart Hub

All devices must be picked up at and returned to High River Library (909 1 St SW) during open hours. Please DO NOT use the outdoor drop box or you may be responsible for damage to the device.

The Library will remotely disable any Smart Hubs that are not returned by the due date.
