Want to get something on paper?

You can print at the Library!

Printing basics

  • You can print at any of our branches for a small fee per page.
  • There are different ways to submit your print job depending on whether you're using your own device or a public computer at the Library.
  • To keep your print job private, it won't print right away. You have to visit the Print Release Station within 4 hours to finish printing and pay.


When you pick up your printing, you can pay in cash or by using a print deposit account. You can add a balance to your print deposit account with cash, debit, or credit. Our staff can set this up for you.

Additionally, you can tap your payment card (Visa, MasterCard, Debit, Apple Pay, or Google Pay) to pay for your print jobs. Transactions will appear as SH Vending payments on bank statements. There is a $20 limit per print job with debit/credit. Prices are per page with taxes included:

As of August 2020, $5.00 of free, in-branch printing will now be allocated for every library cardholder, per month. Click here to learn more.
