Printing and photocopying

Randwick City Library membership offers self-service photocopying and printing facilities in all library locations.If you are not a member and wish to join, please register and read all about Your library membership on our website.

Jobs can be sent to print from our public access computers or from your own device in the library or at home. They will sit in a print queue until they are released at the printer when you log in with your library card number and PIN/password.

You will need to add funds to your library account to cover the cost of your print job before you release it from the printer.

Add funds to your library account online or in branch at a payment kiosk with cash or card. Payment kiosks cannot give change – funds that you do not use will remain on your card until the next time you need to make a payment or print.

If you wish to send the print job from home or from your own device in the library, log in with your library card number and PIN/password, and then upload your file via webprint.

If you prefer to email your print jobs, send them from the email address linked to your library account to webprint@randwick.nsw.gov.au as an attachment. If you need to update your email address on our system, please contact the library.

All jobs sent to web print will need to be released at any of our branches within 24 hours or they will expire.

To apply for a guest pass, one-time visitors to the Library are required to present some form of ID and provide a contact telephone number to staff. An email address must also be provided should the user wish to scan items.
