Photocopying, Printing, Scanning, and Faxing Policy


The Caroline County Public Library provides photocopiers for public use located at the Central Library in Denton, the Federalsburg Branch, and the North County Branch in Greensboro. Copies are black and white, and may be made on regular (8.5 x 11”) or legal-sized (8.5 x 14”) paper.

Please ensure all photocopies comply with copyright law.



  1. Copies are $0.25 per side. Payment is made directly to library staff when the copying is complete.
  2. The Library accepts cash or check as payment for photocopies. The cost for photocopies can be added to the customer’s library account for later payment.
  3. The Library is not responsible for bad photocopies due to user error.
  4. For machine errors, such as lines and toner defects, the Library will provide a replacement copy. Please direct these issues to library staff.
  5. Users should report any machine errors immediately to the nearest service desk.
  6. Users can ask for staff assistance in making copies.
  7. The Library copiers print on letter paper. Users are not allowed to bring in their own paper.
  8. The Library copiers are best suited for small jobs. Customers are encouraged to use office supply or printing stores for jobs over 50 pages. Library staff can provide referrals.



The Caroline County Public Library provides printers for public use to print items from the public computers located at the Central Library in Denton, the Federalsburg Branch, and the North County Branch in Greensboro.

  • Printouts are $0.25 per page.
  • Money may be added to the customer’s printing account, or payment can be made directly to library staff when the printouts are complete.
  • You can print from anywhere to our Denton Branch via our Print VIA Wireless Link



The photocopiers may also be used as scanners. Scans may be saved on a jump drive or sent to an individual’s email. There is no charge for this service.



The Caroline County Public Library is pleased to offer fax services to the public from its
locations in Denton, Greensboro, and Federalsburg. By allowing library staff to fax their
document, users agree to the following:

  • We Send Only – We Do Not Receive
  • The cost to send a fax is $1.
  • Faxes will not be sent to international numbers, including Canada and Mexico.
  • If the receiving party’s number is busy, staff will make a total of 3 attempts to transmit the fax. If the party’s number is busy all three times, the customer must take their document with them, and may return the next business day. At that time, staff will make 3 more attempts.
  • Users are expected to remain in the library while staff is faxing their
    document and issuing the transmission report.
  • Users are responsible for ensuring their fax was received by the other party, even if the library’s fax machine reports it was a successful transmission.
  • At Federalsburg and Greensboro, transmission reports will be printed out and handed to the user after each transaction is completed, at no extra cost. The Central fax machine does not provide transmission reports, but users may opt to be emailed a confirmation their fax was sent.
  • Any faxing documents left at the library may be destroyed within 24 hours if no claim is made to them.
  • A receipt may be issued to the user for the cost of the fax transmission.
  • All users’ faxed documents will be kept strictly confidential.
