ePRINTit Remote Printing

The ePRINTit remote printing service allows you to send documents from your personal device to a printer at the Tacoma Public Library location of your choice.

Access the remote printing service through the web page portal:

Paper sizes supported:

  • Letter (8.5"x11")
  • Ledger (11"x17")
  • Legal (8.5"x14")

You can retrieve the print at any library location with your card number and PIN. If you have not printed with us before, you will need to speak to a staff member to retrieve your prints.

Library staff will need the guest name you used to send the print to find it and send it to the printer.

At this time, the ePRINTit service offered through the library is not compatible with the ePRINTit app, but the web page option works on smartphones, tablets, and computers!
