GRAND RAPIDS, MI (December 9, 2020) – The Grand Rapids Public Library is now offering contactless copying, faxing, and scanning of documents through its GRPL To Go curbside service. Contactless printing has been available since June. Patrons will be able to have up to 50 pages per week copied, printed, scanned or faxed at no cost.
“As more people work and learn from home, access to business machines like printers, scanners, and copiers are not available or affordable,” remarked GRPL Director John McNaughton. “But the need is still there. Offering these services is another example of how GRPL can bridge the technology gap many are facing.”
To use these services, patrons can submit a request online, or bring their documents to any GRPL location. Staff will assist them at the GRPL To Go walk up window or by phone or text curbside. When complete, staff will return the original documents and any copies/printouts in a safe and contactless manner.
GRPL To Go is a curbside service that allows patrons to pick up holds and receive account assistance in addition to free copying, printing, scanning and faxing. It also offers limited material retrieval, book bundles, and storytime kits for families to use at home.
