Hi there! You can print from a variety of devices using our ePrint service.

With our new ePrint service, you can use your personal computer or mobile device to print to the library’s printers from anywhere. Simply submit documents for printing and come to the library to release and pick up your document using your library card.

Print from a laptop or desktop computer

You can print from your laptop or desktop at home, at work, or when you're in the library:

  1. Begin by visiting the appropriate page for your local library. (Which library is closest to me?)
  2. Select the printer and enter your email address.
  3. Browse your computer to find and select the file you wish to print.
  4. Click the green print icon (you will see the status of your print job and a reference number).
  5. At the Self Service Station in the library, select “Release a Print Job.”
  6. Enter the email address you supplied and select your print job.

Your print job will be printed!

Print from a tablet or smartphone app

First, you'll need to download the app for your device:

  1. Visit your device’s ‘store’ for apps; search for, install and launch the PrinterOn App.
  2. Click “No printer selected.”
  3. Click “Search.” Search for Sonoma County Library.
  4. Choose the printer for the library you wish to print at.

To print:

  1. Documents: when viewing the document, click in the upper right corner and upload the document to the PrinterOn App.
  2. Photos from your phone: open the app, click on “photo” and select a photo to print.
  3. Select the printer and click the print icon.
  4. Enter an email address and click on the check mark (you will receive a notice that the job started, and shortly after another message stating “Job Success”).
  5. At the Self Service Station in the library, select “Release a Print Job.”
  6. Enter the email address you supplied and select your print job.

Your print job will be printed!

Use email to send a document directly

  1. Email from any device directly to the library’s print system using the printer's own address. You can just send the email itself, or send attachments (e.g., pictures, PDF, text documents) to print.
  2. Wait until you receive back a reply email from the system. It will list out print jobs—one each for the email itself and any attachments you sent.
  3. At the Self Service Station in the library, select “Release a Print Job.”
  4. Enter the email address you supplied and select your print job.

Your print job will be printed!
