English | Español | 中文 | 日本語 | 한국어 | Pусский | Tiếng Việt

 

Printing can be submitted from home, on a checked-out library laptop or on another web-connected device through our Remote Printing Portal. After submitting a print job, you may choose to have the library print it for you for contact-free pickup or come into any open library to print it yourself at a print release station. Please see the section How to Retrieve Your Print Job for detailed instructions for each option.

Customers receive a weekly print credit of $7.00. Print jobs that exceed a customer's remaining weekly credit cannot be printed using the contact-free method, but funds may be added at in-building print stations to facilitate larger print jobs.

Printing can be in black & white or color. Black & white prints are charged at 10-cents per page and color prints are charged at 50-cents per page.
