Do more with library wi-fi

wi-fi updatesThe Central, Rincon Valley, Rohnert Park-Cotati, Healdsburg, Northwest Santa Rosa (Coddingtown) and Petaluma Libraries now sport full-service wireless Internet access for public use. In the following weeks other branches will follow suit.

Our original wi-fi service only allowed web browsing. E-mail programs such as Outlook did not work with this service. Our new upgraded public wireless Internet service now allows you to use e-mail programs, chat, and other Internet services that have not been available using our original service. Please be patient if your branch does not yet have this service: it should be available soon!

Added Sept. 29: Sebastopol

New e-mail alerts for “due-soon” items

Still in the middle of reading that last batch of books you checked out? Now, get a reminder in time to renew them.

If we have an e-mail address for you, we now send you an e-mail before your items are due, rather than waiting until after they’re overdue. We have had numerous requests for this feature over the years.

You can have your library account changed from phone to e-mail notification by asking at the desk next time you check out items, or by using this form.
