This is what our copy machines and coin boxes look like!

Copy, Scan, and Fax at the Library

Scanning, faxing, and copying can all be done at the same machine! These machines are located at all locations.

How Does it Work?

Our machines are designed to print only 8.5" x 11" paper. All of them accept cash and are self-service. The cash boxes paired with each one will accept up to $20 in coins, $1 bills, or $5 bills. If you plan to make more than $20 worth of copies/faxes/scans, please ask for assistance!

PLEASE NOTE: The library cannot provide change or break bills! However, the coin boxes will provide change if you do not use the full balance inserted. You must use coins, $1 bills, or $5 bills.

The faxing function operates via an Internet connection rather than using a phoneline. This helps us keep down the cost to you since there are no long-distance charges.

Other Features

• Single or duplex printing
• Scan to PDF, USB,or email
• Print PDFs, JPGs, or TIFFs from USB

Library Lover Tip: If you don't need a hard copy of a document, consider going green and copying it to USB or email instead of to paper.
