On your email or a device?  No problem!  Look below for directions on how to get your information printed.

Printing from Your Device or Email?


You can use the free PrinterOn app, available on Google Play or the Apple App Store.  This app allows you to print documents, photos, or web pages from your device, without having to use a browser or send an email.

Once downloaded, you will need to find and add one or both of the following printers  by searching for "Peabody Public Library Columbia City Indiana":

  • For black-and-white print jobs, use ppl-webprint-bw
  • For color print jobs, use ppl-webprint-color

You will still pay for your print job at the print release station, not on your device.


To print an email message or attachment from your mailbox, simply forward your email to one of the following email addresses:


A flatbed scanner is available for public use. The scanner can be used for documents up to legal size using the document feeder, or up to letter size on the flatbed portion. It can also be used to scan transparent photo negatives and slides. The software includes OCR to convert scanned documents to text. Scanned files can be printed, uploaded to the Internet, or saved to your portable device. This is a free service that does not require a library card.


Faxes are sent and received at the Checkout Desk.

Sending a Fax:

You will need to fill out a form at the Checkout Desk.  A staff member will then process the fax and accept payment.  A cover sheet is required, but you will not be charged for it.

  • $.10 per page, local or long distance.  The library does not provide international fax capabilities.

Receiving a Fax:

There is no charge for receiving a fax. When the fax arrives at the library the clerk at the Checkout desk will notify the person to whom the fax is addressed.
