Need to Fax?

Submitted by Alexandria Ducksworth

Who uses a fax machine anymore? In rare cases, you might.

It can be difficult finding a faxing machine when you’re in a hurry. Fortunately, there are online faxing services available. GCPL recommends two located under “Fax and Scan Instructions” in the GCPL Guides: GotFreeFax and Fax Zero.

With GotFree Fax, you can fax twice per day with a three-page limit. Outbound faxing can be sent all over the US and Canada.

Meanwhile, you can fax five times for free with Fax Zero. Like GotFree Fax, there is a three-page faxing limit. Faxing is available through the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico.

There are more online faxing services you can try (services require an account sign-up).
