Rowan Public Library

Need access to a printer? Not sure where to get a document printed at short notice in Rowan County? Rowan Public Library offers wireless printing at all three branch locations in China Grove, Rockwell and Salisbury. All you need is an email address or internet access to send your print job to one of our printers.

Do you have to be in the library to send your documents to the printer? No, all that is needed is an email address you have access to on a mobile device, or you can visit our website and upload your documents there.

Once your print job is accepted by our printer, a confirmation email is sent to you to confirm your print job is ready to pick up at the printer. I know you’re thinking that will lead to our printer printing all night? Not quite, your documents will only print once they are paid for and released from the print station in our library.

To retrieve your documents, please visit during our hours of operation and remember to use the email address used to send the print job. However, you can send your documents anytime of day and pick them up when we are open.

If this sounds a little confusing, feel free to stop by any library branch and staff will be available to help you with wireless printing or visit our website at www.rowancountync.gov/1440/Wireless-Printing. If you like using mobile apps, consider downloading PrinterOn and searching for Rowan Public Library to send your documents directly to the printer.

This service can be a lifesaver for anyone in need of printing a document when their printer has run out of ink. Before panicking, next time consider visiting your nearest library branch to print your documents. Currently, we charge 15 cents per page for black and white copies and 75 cents per page for colored copies. Don’t hesitate to call or visit your library for help on using our wireless printing service.
