    Copy machines accept bills, coins or Copy Cards for payment. Computer printers accept Copy Cards only. Your full-sized plastic Library Card can also serve as a Copy Card (keychain cards lack the magnetic strip required for vending services).

    Copy Cards may be purchased at any of our four locations. The card costs $1.00 for the initial purchase (40¢ for the card and 60¢ worth of copies or printouts). Money can be added to Copy Cards or to library cards with magnetic strips at any of our Vendacard machines or photocopiers.

    WiFi Printing

    All Santa Monica Public Library locations are equipped with WiFi printing capabilities for users who wish to send black & white print jobs from a laptop or mobile device connected to the Library's wireless network. To use this service, you must first install an appropriate printer driver to your laptop - click here for instructions on downloading and installing the driver.

     

    Sending and Retrieving Computer Print Jobs

    The Library's computer printers are configured to be shared by multiple users. When you send a document to a Library printer, you will be asked to identify your print job with a name and password (password is optional and case-senstitive). Once this is done, you may go to the designated printer and insert your Copy Card into the slot. The printer station will then display a list of patron print jobs. Select your job, input the password if required, and then collect your printout.

    Print jobs that are not printed within 2 hours of submission are automatically deleted from the print queue.
