At this time our building is still closed to the public and printing is available for contactless pickup only. We will continue to adapt our services as permitted by Public Health guidelines.

What hours will this service be available?

I don’t feel comfortable letting staff print my private documents. Are there any other options for me to print?
At this time, this is the only way to provide printing services and follow Public Health distancing guidelines. Your privacy is important to us, and our staff will handle your information in a professional manner. All emails and attached documents will be deleted immediately after printing. Any printed documents that aren’t picked up within 2 business days are shredded.
The library cannot be held responsible for any items a customer chooses to print through this service, so if you still have concerns, this may be a service you choose not to use.
I need more than 10 pages a day. Is there any way I can add funds to print more than 10 pages?
At this time, customers are limited to 10 pages per day.
My printouts don’t look right. Can I have them reprinted?
Staff cannot edit documents. We encourage you to make any needed changes and resend your document. If the 10 page daily limit has already been reached, your document will be printed the next business day.
I don’t have a computer, but need things printed. Can library staff print items for me?
Staff at the library can print items from publicly accessible websites for customers as part of regular library reference service (limit of 10 pages per day). We are, however, unable to print items from personal accounts (such as a patron’s personal email).
I need copies - is there any way staff can make copies for me?
Unfortunately, we are currently unable to make copies for customers. If you need multiple copies of a print job, please let staff know when you email. Staff can make multiple copies if it does not exceed 10 pages per day.
