Printers, Copiers, and Fax Service


Black and white printing services are available at all Pratt locations. Networked printers are attached to each group of computers. To print from your own computer or mobile device, see Wireless Printing.

  • The first five black and white pages per day are free with your library card
  • After the first five pages, black and white prints are ten cents ($0.10) per page
  • Color pages are always twenty cents ($0.20) per page
  • Please note each printed side counts as one page

You can add additional money to your account by using the APM (Automated Payment Machine) using SAM, the system that manages your printing. 


Copy services are available at all locations. You will need your library card and PIN to use the photocopiers, and money must be added to your account before you make copies.

  • Black and white copies are ten cents ($0.10) per page
  • Color copies are twenty cents ($0.20) per page 
  • Please note each printed side counts as one page

The SAM (Smart Access Manager™) kiosks at Central Library and the Hamilton Branch have a "Get A Copy Card" option. If you do not have a library card and only need to make copies, select this option at the kiosk. Once you have deposited money into the kiosk, take your receipt and scan it at a photocopier to make copies. Copy cards never expire, but there is no way to retrieve funds from a lost card.


Fax service is available at the following locations: Herring Run, Orleans Street, Pennsylvania Avenue, Reisterstown Road, Southeast Anchor, and Waverly

  • Domestic faxes (which include anywhere in the US, Canada, or Caribbean) cost $1.75 for the first page and $1.00 for each additional page
  • International faxes cost $3.95 per page and $3.45 for each additional page 

Customers can pay for fax with a debit or credit card, or purchase a FaxCash Prepaid Fax Card. This service is for outgoing faxes only.
