Copy/Fax/Print/Scan Service


The Ely Public Library provides faxing service during our regular operating hours.  Fees for sending or receiving faxes are $2 for every 5 pages.  Cover pages are available at the circulation desk and are considered as page 1. 

To send a fax, please ask a staff member at the circulation desk.  The staff member will need the pages you are sending and the phone number of the receiving fax machine. 

To receive a fax, please call the library to let us know a fax will be coming in for you and when you plan to pick it up.  Please ask the party sending the fax to include your contact information (full name and phone number) on their cover sheet.  Our fax number is 319-848-4056.
