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.)
Skip step 1 if your email is already registered in your library card account. You can verify that your email is registered by logging into your account. Your email address will appear in the tab “Personal Information.”
- To register or update your email address on your library card account, stop by any of JPL's 21 locations. Please note that library hours vary by location.
- If you have never used or have not recently used one of JPL’s public computers, swipe your library card at any print release or computer sign-up station at any JPL location. This must be done before you submit your first email to Mobile Print.
Using your email account, attach the document(s) you want printed to an email message and send it to email@example.com for black and white printing or firstname.lastname@example.org for color printing. The subject line of the email is optional.
Mobile Print will respond by email to indicate what documents were accepted and are ready for printing.
Some documents may not be supported and will be indicated in the email response. Supported documents are listed below. Once you send a print request, it will remain queued in the system for up to 48 hours.

Visit any of JPL’s 21 locations to release your print job(s) from a print release station. Before printing, add funds to your account at any circulation desk or at a virtual cash acceptor located in most library locations.
