For wireless printing, you can set up your printing from anywhere and visit the library later that day:

  1. On the app: Swipe or scroll to find the ''Print from your device'' button.
    On the catalogue, click ''Print a document'' on the left-hand menu.
  2. Select ''Library Card Number login''
  3. Enter your library card number and PIN (usually your date of birth) and select ''login''. (If your device offers to save your details for next time, you may wish to do so).
  4. Upload your document or enter the necessary information for printing an email or from URL.
  5. When the document status says ''waiting for release'', go to any CBCity library, log in to any printer, tap ''print release'' and release your job/s. Ensure that you have enough money on your card - just make sure you add money before you try to print. 

CBCity offers scan to email and scan to USB at all branches, free of charge.
