Printing, Copying, Scanning, Faxing


Public Computer Use and Printing


The Library has installed a new print management system that queues print jobs and accepts new forms of payment. Instructions are posted at each computer and at the payment kiosk.


The system requires user authentication for computer access and print job retrieval. User authentication offers privacy and protection for your information on a public computer. Logging off immediately restarts the computer, erasing any documents and login credentials inadvertently left on the computer during your session.


  • Sharon cardholders will use their library card number to log in to a computer. Patrons who do not have their card, and do not know their number, will be given a Guest Pass.
  • Non-Sharon cardholders may request a Guest Pass at the Reference Desk.

Authentication also ensures that your print jobs are retrievable only by you.

  • Print charges remain the same:
    • Black & White: $0.20 per page/side
    • Color: $0.30 per page/side
  • Payment is now available by debit or credit card, as well as cash, at the new kiosk.

Wireless Printing

We are working to get wireless printing with the new system operational as soon as possible.


Photocopying and Scanning to Email

Procedures and charges for these remain unchanged at this time.



Faxing remains unavailable until further notice.


Future Equipment Changes

A new copier/printer will be delivered in a few weeks and will be connected to the new print management system. Once installed, all of the above functions will occur in one system, including one payment kiosk, and procedures will be updated. We thank you for your patience as we work to improve our technology.
