You can print from home, on the go, or from a wireless device in the library with ePRINTit at Whitefish Bay Public Library.
You do not need to have a library card in order to print. All items sent to mobile printing are automatically deleted by the system after 24 hours.
There are three ways to use mobile printing:
- Go to Whitefish Bay Public Library's ePRINTit web portal: https://tbs.eprintit.com/portal/#/ppl/upload/WFBL
- Upload your document
- Enter a user name (can be anything you wish - i.e. your full name, a nickname, email address, etc.) or library card number (not required). Optional: enter an email address to receive confirmation that your print job has been sent to the library's printer
- Click submit.
- When you arrive at the library printing kiosk, simply type in the username you used to submit your print jobs to locate and print your items.
- Email your document as an attachment, or simply forward an email you wish to print. IMPORTANT: to print a boarding pass, you must either download a PDF of the pass and email or upload that file OR save the web-based pass as a web archive file and email or upload that file.
- To print in black and white, send to tbs-WFBLemail@example.com
- To print in color, send to tbs-WFBLfirstname.lastname@example.org
- You will be emailed instructions to release and pay for your print job.
- When you arrive at the library printing kiosk, simply type in the part of your email address BEFORE the "@" symbol to locate and print your items.
- Download the ePRINTit Public Print Locations app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Be sure you get the app called "Public Print Locations" in order to be able to use the library's mobile printing.
