Printing Services

We offer printing, scanning, and photocopying services at many locations. 

You can print files in two different ways, either by bringing them in on a USB or by e-mailing them to the printers. The email code can be used at any of the libraries that offer printing services. Please note the code is only valid on the same day it is received.

Printing from USB

  • Files must be in PDF format only.

Printing via Email

To print via email:

  • Send the files as attachments - files must be Word, JPEG, or PDF format only.
  • You will then receive an email with a code back from the library.
  • Present this code to your librarian who will then retrieve the print job.
  • Codes are only valid until midnight of the day they are received.

You can email your files before arriving at the library, or at the library.
