We will print up to 5 pages for you at this time. Items for photocopying and faxing can be left in an envelope on the pickup table at your arranged time. Items will be copied and brought back to the table ½ hour later. Please know that although we have security cameras, we do not recommend leaving important documents. We are not offering staff hand-off at this time. You can however, scan items and email them to the above address. Library staff can walk you through how to use your smartphone for scanning.
