Print from Home

The Pickering Public Library is now offering Print from Home service for a trial period. You can send print jobs from your home to our printer and pick up your pages during curbside service hours! During this trial period, there is no charge for this service. That’s right, for a limited time this service is being offered free of charge!

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Print from Home print jobs can only be picked up at the Central Library.
  2. Print jobs must be submitted from a PC, Mac, or Chromebook (instructions below). They can not be submitted from a mobile device, such as a cell phone or tablet.
  3. Clients are limited to ten (10) free pages per day.
  4. In addition to the daily page maximum, print jobs must be:
    1. Black and white (no colour printing),
    2. Letter (8.5x11") or legal (8.5x14") size paper.
  5. Print jobs must be picked up on the same day they are submitted. Print jobs not picked up on the same day may be deleted. Clients must arrive a minimum of thirty (30) minutes before the Central Library closes to ensure there is adequate time to print and deliver the print job.
  6. Once you notify staff that you have arrived to pick up your Print from Home print job, please allow staff ten (10) to fifteen (15) minutes to print your submission and deliver it to you.
  7. Onsite printing, photocopying, and scanning is not available at this time.
  8. All of the above is subject to change without notice.
