Computers & Printing

Primary tabs

In order to allow fair access to its public computers, the Placentia Library uses a reservation system. A current Placentia or Anaheim Library card allows the user to utilize the computers for two hours per day per patron. Visitors to the area with valid ID may also get a Guest Pass from the staff at the Adult Services Desk for computer access.

In the Adult and Children Service areas, the Library's public computers run using Microsoft Windows 10 Operating System with documents, spreadsheets, and presentations created with Microsoft Office 2013. There is also an iMac computer available with Microsoft Office applications and printing. You may print your work or save it to your USB flash drive. Downloading materials from the Internet onto the computer hard drive is not allowed for security reasons.

Headphones are not provided. You may bring your own headphones or purchase ear buds for $2.00.
