Wi-Fi Printing Now Available at The Seattle Public Library

The Seattle Public Library has expanded its printing services to make it easier to print documents at the Library. Library patrons can now send print jobs from their own wireless devices to Library printers.


Wi-Fi print jobs may be sent from a laptop, or tablets and smartphones with Web browsers that support JavaScript.


To print a document from a personal device, patrons can log into www.spl.org/wifiprinting while they are at a Library location and connected to the Library's public Wi-Fi. Print jobs will be available at that location's print release station.


Wi-Fi printing for jobs sent from personal devices cost the same as printing from one of the Library's public workstations: single-sided, 8.5" x 11" print jobs are $.15 per page for black and white printing and $.50 per page for color printing. Patrons may pay for print jobs with cash, credit card or a PayPal account for online payment at https://pay.spl.org/.


The following file types can be uploaded for printing: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, TXT, XPS and common image file formats (JPG, GIF, PNG, TIFF and BMP). Webpages can be printed as long as they are not password-protected (e.g., no emails, boarding passes, bank statements, etc.). Password-protected pages may be printed if converted to a PDF and saved to the personal device before printing.
