Fax and Copy Machine Policy

The Merriam-Gilbert Public Library’s fax and copy machines are available during regular library hours for the public to send, receive, and reproduce information within restriction guidelines (Title 17, U.S. code). Fax service is provided at no cost to the public, but an in-kind donation is encouraged. The first 6 copies are free, and are .10 per page thereafter.

Fax and copier use are provided on a self-serve basis. Staff members are available for general assistance if necessary, provided said assistance does not impede service at the Circulation Desk.

The Unattended Child Policy shall be observed relative to fax and copier usage when a child accompanies an adult, in order to maintain a safe and comfortable environment for all.

Only standard 8.5” X 11” copies may be inserted into the fax machine.

The Library is not responsible for the success/failure of transmission or quality of copy.

International faxes are prohibited.

The Library Staff retain the right to limit access to the fax and/or copy machines if this policy is violated
