Printing is available in the library from any of our PCs through the use of our print system. To pay for your printed pages, you must purchase a print card from a vending machine in the Reference area using dollar bills. The cost of the empty card is $1.00, which after purchase may be loaded in $1.00 increments. Each printed page will deduct 15¢ from the amount on your card, which may be reloaded at any time. Pages are retrieved using your print card and your library card. For information or assistance, please inquire at the Reference Desk.
Printing is also available on laptops or mobile devices, either from inside the library or remotely through an internet connection. Via the PrinterOn service, printed items may be sent from anywhere directly to our printer, where you can pick them up with your print card. Items will be saved at our print terminal for up to 48 hours for your convenience. For more information, follow the above link or inquire at the Reference Desk.
The Allentown Public library offers outgoing fax service. The fee is $1.00 per page faxed. A cover letter form is available for use free of charge. Incoming fax service is not available.
Photocopying in both color and black and white is also available. The cost is $.15 for black and white and $.25 for color pages. The copy machines take dollar bills or non penny coins.
We also provide a scanning service for documents or images. For $.50 per page scanned, you can have any image or document saved in .pdf, .jpg, or .txt format and e-mailed or saved onto a flash drive.
Any questions regarding either of these services, please contact the reference department at 610-820-2400 x2, or visit us on the first floor of the library.
