Printing at the Library

The library now offers wireless printing services to the public using Xerox’s “PrintByXerox” feature on all of the library’s public copiers and printers.

How Wireless Printing Works

The PrintByXerox service works by allowing anyone with an email address to send an email to with the file they wish to print as an attachment. 

The first time you send an email to, you will receive an email welcoming you to the PrintByXerox service. The email includes an auto-generated password for the service. The email also includes a shorter, auto-generated user id which you can use in place of their email address if you wish; however, the email address from which you sent the document will also always work as a user ID.

After the email has been sent, you can go to any CRRL public printer or copier, select the “@PrintByXerox” icon on the screen, enter your email and password, and print out the file or files that you sent.

See detailed instructions below.
