Patrons can choose to print with one of the following three methods:
*   Emailing documents to bpl-burlesonlibrary-bw@printspots.com (for black & white) or bpl-burlesonlibrary-color@printspots.com (for color)
*   Using the PrinterOn app for iOS, Android and other devices

To pick up their documents, guests simply go to the library's print release terminal near the public computers and enter the email address they used to submit their jobs. Black and white prints cost 10 cents per page, and color prints cost 25 cents per page.
 
Mobile print jobs can be submitted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and will be available for 48 hours after they are sent. Prints can be picked up during regular library hours, which are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Wednesday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday through Saturday.
