About the above image: They were called “book women,” saddling up at dawn, venturing up rugged hillsides and crossing frozen streams to deliver reading material to people isolated in Appalachia's mountain communities. The Pack Horse Library initiative was part of President Franklin Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration (WPA) to improve employment and literacy in the late 1930s and early 40s. The images are of book women in Kentucky, from the Goodman-Paxton Photographic Collection, Special Collections, University of Kentucky Libraries.

Print to the Library

With many of us all relying on mobile devices and not having printers at home these days, it can be a challenge when we need to print something important. The Pinedale Library offers a print service where you can simply email what you'd like to print right to the library and then pick it up for a nominal charge. This service is ideal when you need to print:

• Amazon/online shopping return shipping labels
• Sports or activity sign up forms
• Travel/accommodation reservations
• Real estate or bill of sale documents
• Homeschooling resources

Simply email the document, web page, or whatever you'd like have printed to a designated email address:


In the email subject line, indicate "please print" or "print job." We will notify you when your printed documents are ready for pickup. The fee is 10 cents per B&W page or $1 per color page, plus a $1 processing fee. For larger printing jobs, call us at (307) 367-4114 to discuss options and pricing.

Note that library staff will briefly view the document in the preparation of your print outs, so this service may not be the best option for printing your confidential or sensitive documents.

Our photocopier remains available for your copying needs at a nominal charge.

Email your document to the Pinedale Library for printing
