Free, Remote Printing at the Library

Did you know you can submit print jobs remotely from your laptop, phone or other device for pick up in the Library? You don’t need to make a computer reservation or log in to a computer at the Library to print emails, documents, boarding passes or images.

ePRINTit is a convenient, safe option when you just can’t get to an office or when your home printer is out of paper or toner. Save yourself from the crowds at a big box store. Until further notice while we continue to navigate through pandemic safety concerns, all printing at the library is free.

Use the Library’s ePRINTit options for files, webpages, emails and content stored in cloud services such as Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, OneDrive and Office 365. Send the print job remotely, then stop at the Library during Grab & Go hours to print out your job at the printing station near our Adult Services Desk.

Below are easy-to-follow instructions for printing from a laptop/computer or through the ePRINTit app. If you have any questions about using our remote print options, please call our Adult Services Desk at 630/393-1171 x121 or adultservices@warrenville.com.
