While you can print files in several formats, including PDF, DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, JPG, TIFF, and TXT, please NOTE that it is strongly encouraged to print files in PDF format to avoid loss of any special formatting.
Other formats, including legal size, 11×17 and printing file formats other than PDF may require the use of a public computer in the library to print to the printer instead of emailing.
- Send emails with attachments to:
