Mobile Print

Jacksonville Public Library’s new Mobile Print service is designed to suit the way you work. Now you can send print jobs from wherever you are—within the library, at home, or on the road—from any Internet-connected device to the library’s print management system. All you need is a library card and an email account.

After an initial setup and adding funds to your library account, you simply print and then visit any of the library’s 21 locations to release your secured print job and be on your way.    (See Printing Costs below.)

Setup

1.  Go to the print center website:  https://jplprintcenter.coj.net/myprintcenter and log in using your Username and Password. Your library card number is your default username and most Pharos accounts do not have a password.  Please ask for help at an Ask Here Desk.

2.  Once logged in, check to see if you are on the Job List or Activity page in the top left corner of the screen.  You will need to be on the Job list page, as the picture below shows. The second picture shows the full web page.

9.  Once you are happy with your print settings you can now go to the nearest Library branch, and use any of the public printers.  Be sure to have your library card with you!  Please note, you can visit the Circulation desk or one of our Virtual Cash Acceptor machines to put money on your card to pay for your print job.  The cost is $0.15 per black and white page, and $0.50 per color page.
