From the library's home page, click on Services, select Special Resources, click on Wireless Access and Printing. Finally, click on Wireless Printing. You will find downloadable drivers for each branch where wireless printing is available.

The print driver must be downloaded while using the wireless connection at the intended library in order for it to configure properly. (For example: if you want to print at Pacific Beach, you must be at the Pacific Beach library using their wireless connection at the time of the download/configuration.) If you print at more than one branch, be sure to download the individual print driver for each branch.

A San Diego Public Library card or print card is necessary to establish a print account. Your print account is good at most* San Diego Public Library branches. Please be sure to create your print account before printing a job (money can be added anytime). The cost is 20 cents per page.

* Note: Wireless printing is currently not available at the following branches: Clairemont, Paradise Hills, Ocean Beach, Skyline Hills, University Heights and Logan Heights.

All print jobs left in the queue self delete after 8 hours.

Wireless Print Driver Installation and Instructions

While using the wireless network in the library, access the print driver list below and find the print driver associated with the branch/central library you are visiting. Right click on the name and select "Save Target As" from the resulting menu. Next, save the file where it will be easy to retrieve, like the desktop. Navigate to where you saved the file and double click it to launch the installer. Once the install is complete you can print via the wireless network.

Note: Printing software is for Microsoft Windows 32-bit operating systems only.
