Wireless Printing & Copies

Print at the Library from Wherever You Are

All customers with a library card in good standing are able to print and make copies at any library location. You can also use our wireless printing service from Smart Alec to send a print job from your laptop, tablet, or mobile device to your local library to pick up. See instructions for using SmartAlec below.

Customers receive 10 free pages each open service day — pages can be copies, prints, or a combination of each. Pages in excess of the 10 free allotted are $0.15 per page. Staff cannot selectively print individual pages from within a multi-page document, so be sure to print only the pages you want.

Before using our printing service, please read our Acceptable Use Policy.
