  • Once you submit your printing job by hitting PrintQueue, you will see the message Your print job has been sent to the selected printer successfully and you will be able to visit the Library to retrieve it.

  • You can visit any library location offering curbside printing pickup services to retrieve your print job.

  • Once you submit your print job, you have 24 hours to collect it. After 24 hours, print jobs automatically disappear from the queue and you will have to resubmit. You won't be charged for print jobs that you submitted but have not been printed yet. 

  • When you arrive at your pickup location and call the curbside pickup number, staff will release your printing job and bring it to you when it is ready. This may take a few minutes. 

Your Library card gives you $5 of printing

You have a monthly print credit of $5, which allows you to print up to 50 black and white pages or 25 colour pages free of charge. Each side of a page is counted, which means a double-sided page would count as two. 

Your $5 credit renews every month, and unspent credit does not accrue from month to month. You can add money to your print account for additional printing, but the free $5 credit must be used up first. To add money to your print account, please call 403.260.2600 and we can take payment over the phone. 

Check to make sure you have enough money in your print account to cover your entire print job before sending it to print. If you do not have enough money to cover all pages, your job may only partially print, or not at all. Depending on the size of the print job, you may still need to add money to your account even if you have not used your monthly $5 allotment.

For curbside printing, your PCounter print account will be charged once you call into the curbside number and your print job has been manually released to the printer by Library staff.
