Mobile Print

  • Now you can upload a document from anywhere on almost any web device and print it at any Boise Public Library location.  

Before You Start

  • In order to print, you'll need a library account and will need to have money loaded into the account.  Printing is currently 10 cents a page. Each Library card holder is given 3 free prints per day.
  • Note that you can upload your document if there's no money in your account, but you'll need to add funds before printing. Uploaded files are deleted after 24 hours.
  • Printing is available in black and white ONLY, on 8 1/2" x 11" paper (letter size)

How It Works

There are two ways to upload a document for printing, depending on the device you're using. Please note that uploaded files are deleted after 24 hours.

Option 1: Upload Your Document  

Use this if you have a file system that you can browse, such as a PC, Android, or Mac. For Apple iOS devices using the Safari browser will allow you to browse the Files app in which a number of services such as iCloud, Dropbox, and One Drive can be connected (see instructions). For webpages and email, take a screenshot of the page to print the entire document. Otherwise, please see the email instructions below.

  1. Go to mobileprint.boisepubliclibrary.org.
  2. Log in with your Library Card Number and PIN.  From here you will be able to upload a document and view your balance.
  3. Click on "upload document" and browse to your file.
  4. After upload is complete, click the refresh button to see that the document is in your list.
  5. Visit a Boise Public Library location and go to a print release station.  After logging in, your document will be available to print.

Option 2: Email Your Document
