Online WiFi Card

While the library is closed, the WiFi is still available outside both the Civic Center Library and the Sam Garcia Western Avenue Library. The Library WiFi has also been extended to cover the City Hall Ampitheater area. 

To access the Library WiFi, simply choose "AVLibrary" from the list of available WiFi networks. You will be prompted to sign in with your library barcode number and PIN (your PIN is the last 4 digits of the telephone number we have on record for you. If you have a student account, your PIN is your four digit birth year).

If you do not have a library card, you may sign up online using the online library card application. The PACREG barcode assigned after registration in combination with the PIN you setup will allow you access to the AVLibrary WiFi network.
