Hertfordshire County Council

Hertfordshire Libraries are excited to offer Hublet tablet PCs to all library users.

What is a Hublet?

Hublets are Samsung Galaxy tablets which library users can borrow for use within the library. All you need is your Hertfordshire library card and PIN to release a Hublet for an hour’s use, completely free.

The Hublets are ready to browse the internet using the library’s Wi-Fi and are preloaded with some commonly used apps.

When you’re done, return the device to the docking station and all your data will be wiped, ensuring that the Hublet is charged and ready for the next customer and your privacy is protected.

The Hublet tablets and Hublet docking station screen provide a safer user experience by using a self-disinfecting coating method.


What can I use Hublets for?

Our Hublet tablets allow you to access and enjoy a range of services including:

  • thousands of free e-magazines
  • wide selection of e-books
  • catching up with the latest world news
  • online services
  • listening to music
