Anaheim Public Libraries are a "Hot Spot" for wireless access to the Internet, for anyone with a wireless enabled laptop. Just look for the "LIBRARY PATRONS CONNECT HERE"connection and link to that. This wireless is not secured so we do not recommend transmitting sensitive personal information over the library wireless. Library staff cannot provide assistance in setting up personal laptops for connecting to wireless connections. Ponderosa Joint-Use Branch does not have wireless access at this time.
Books not available in the Anaheim Public Library database may be available from another library. A $5.00 fee is charged to search for each requested item.
