Can I check my email at the library?
If you have an e-mail account with one of the free web-based email services (such as HotMail) you can use the library's Internet station to read it.  You cannot use it to access your own account with your own Internet Service Provider unless your ISP provides a way to access e-mail from their webpage.  Please keep in mind that the library is a public place and that your email may not be private.

Do I have to get a card from you if I already have an Orange County Public Library Card?
Yes. Orange Public Library and Orange County Public Library are two different systems and cannot use each other's cards. There is no difficulty in getting a card at either place and having both.

Do library cards cost anything?
No.  Library cards are free to anyone who can present identification with a current address.  Please see Library Card Requirements here on the web page or call (714) 288-2400 and press 2 for circulation to get details.

Do you carry tax forms?
Yes. We carry the basic booklets for both the Federal and State Income Tax Returns.  Booklets and forms are put out as they are received and generally become available mid to late January.  Forms for previous years and lesser used forms can be downloaded from the official State & Federal websites.  Patrons are responsible for the cost of these printouts.

Please call the library for details at (714) 288-2410.

Do you have computers that I can use to type things on?
We have word processing computers at the Main, El Modena and Taft libraries.  You may sign up on a first come, first serve basis.  The maximum computer use time is 90 minutes per day.  The only charge is for printing, which is .15 cents a page for black and white and .60 cents a page for color.

Do you have programs for children?
Yes!  We have many programs for children throughout the year.  Click here to go to the current program and storytime calendar or here for a list of events.  Library programs are also listed in the City publication, Our Orange.

How do I find out what your Library hours are?
