In a pinch for a printout?

Printing a document at your local library is now even easier with Hampshire Libraries’ new email-to-print service. You don’t need to be a library member or log on to a library computer – simply email your document from any computer or smartphone and print it off within 72 hours using your unique five-digit code at a participating library

Councillor Seán Woodward, Executive Member for Recreation and Heritage at Hampshire County Council, said: “Hampshire’s Library Service provides local communities with far more than just exciting reads. In addition to a growing audiobook collection and activities such as Learning in Libraries courses, libraries also provide important community facilities such as computers and printers for the public to use.

“As working and learning from home continue to be many residents’ new normal, providing a flexible and fuss-free printing service is another way that Hampshire’s Libraries are making people’s lives a little easier.”

To use the service, anyone can email a document they’d like to print to to receive an automated email response with a five-digit code. Printing can be collected at any participating branch by entering the print job code into a library printer and paying the correct change into the printer’s coin collector. Printing is available in A3 and A4 formats and charges range from 10p-80p per sheet depending on paper size and printing colour. This service is available at most Hampshire Libraries, except for the Blackfield, Fair Oak, Horndean, Overton and West End branches.
