Copiers, Printers, and Fax Service


Photocopiers are available at all locations. Check with any librarian to find the closest available one. Copies are ten (10) cents per page for black and white copies and twenty (20) cents per page for color copies. You will need your library card and PIN to use the photocopiers, and money must be added to your account before you make copies.

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.


Printers are available at all locations.

To print from your own computer or mobile device, see Wireless Printing
