How do I print from a mobile device?
With mobile devices, print jobs must be emailed to our print system or sent through the PrinterOn app. (Find out how to get the app and set it up here.) Once you send a job to our system, you have 24 hours to visit a library, retrieve the job at a print kiosk and print it out.
Send a job as an email:
To print an email: forward the email to email@example.com. Our print system will send you a confirmation message; when you receive it, the next step is to visit the library, type in your email address at a print kiosk and retrieve the print job.
To print a document: email the document to yourself, then forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The print system will send you a confirmation message; visit the library and use your email address at a print kiosk to retrieve the document. The email and any attached documents will be listed individually, so it is not necessary to print the email in order to print an attachment.
Send a job with the PrinterOn app:
Choose a file type and select the item you want to print:
Documents. The app can only see items saved locally on your device, or in cloud storage your device can access. Tap the Documents tile, then tap "Browse" in the lower right corner to search for the document you want to print. Tap on the document to select it.
Email. Tap the Email tile, then tap the email address saved in the app (if you did not opt to save your email address, the app will ask you to select an email provider and sign in to your inbox.) Scroll down the list of emails in your inbox until you see the one you want to print, and tap to open it.
Photos. The app can only see photos stored locally on your device, or in a cloud storage account your device can access. Tap on the Photos icon, then browse through the photos on your device until you find the one you want to print.
Web. Tap on the Web icon, then type the URL of the page you want to print in the box at the top of the screen. The app will load the page.
Preview and send the job:
Tap the printer icon in the upper right corner to see a print preview: if you are ready to send the print job to our system, tap the green Print button in the lower right corner.
You will see a prompt to enter required information. Type your library card number in the Login ID box, then tap the check mark in the upper right corner to confirm and send the job to our system. A blue bar will appear at the top of the screen, telling you that the app is sending the job.
When the app is finished sending the print job information, a green bar will appear at the top of the screen with the message "Job Success." Your print job is now in our print queue, ready for you to visit a library and print it out.
