Print, Copy, Scan and Fax Services

The Albany Public Library offers multiple print, copy and scanning services. There are multiple methods to print documents, both from our public access PCs and from your own devices, as well as self-service copy and scanning machines. We also offer fax machines at most locations.

Please note: Some services are not available at every location. Please call your desired branch if you have any questions.


From an APL public access PC

When you log into a public access PC in one of our adult, teen or child computer labs, you must send print jobs to the PrinterOn web form that corresponds with the branch, or use the “Print from Anywhere” web form.

From your own device, from an APL Chromebook or from home

If you bring your own device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc), use one of our Chromebooks, or simply want to print from home, you may submit a job using one of the following two methods: 

Print Job Submission: Please visit the APL “Print from Anywhere” web form.

Email: You may submit an email (with optional attachment) to the following address:

Email Method Tips:

  • By default, the library staff will print the email body and any attachments accompanying it.
  • If you simply want only the attachment printed and not the body of the email, please leave the body blank or indicate in the body that you only want the attachment printed.
  • To better assist you, please include in the body of your email: your name, library card number (if present), desired library branch, number of copies (if more than one), page range (if you only want certain pages of your document printed), and whether you want black & white or color (defaults to b&w if not specified).

Retrieve Your Print Job: Proceed to circulation or reference desk at the desired library branch for staff assistance and picking up your print job.
