Printing

Printing is available at 25 cents per page (black & white) or $1.00 per page for colour.

WiFi

Peterborough Public Library provides free wireless Internet access at both our locations.

  • You may access the wireless network anywhere in the library by using your own portable computer or device that has either built-in WiFi or an installed adapter card.  Library staff are not expected to help visitors configure their devices, due to the wide selection of devices available.
  • You can use our WiFi network to access and download audiobooks, ebooks, magazines and more from our Downloadables Page.
  • At this time you are not able to print directly to PPL printers. Please save your files to a portable storage device and use a public workstation to print. 
Please Note: All users of internet access must abide by the Internet and Computer Use Policy.
