Web Printing

Need to print something from your own device? Try web printing!

We are among the first libraries in South Australia to offer this exciting service, which enables you to print documents from your Internet enabled device. It’s fast, easy, and costs the same as printing from one of our PCs. All you need is a smartphone, tablet or PC which is connected to the Internet, and your Adelaide library card. If you don’t have an Adelaide card, please visit us to get a Guest Ticket.

Upload or email your documents, then visit one of our library centres within 48 hours to release your printing.

Web printing makes it possible for you to send a print job from anywhere anytime and collect it from your Adelaide Library.
