Fax Service

Some of the libraries in Tameside offer a public fax service which allows you to send and receive faxes worldwide. You don't even need to know how to work a fax machine yourself; we will do it for you. In addition to sending and receiving your faxes, we are also able to send faxes between libraries in order to respond to your enquiries quickly. Please note that all enquiries are answered during the library's staffed hours.

Sending a fax

Charges for sending a fax start from £1.70 and is available at Stalybridge, Droylsden and Dukinfield Libraries during staffed hours. The charge depends on the number of pages you wish to send and the country which you want to send the fax to. To find out more about costs and charges for faxing, please contact Tameside Libraries Information Service using the details below.

If you wish to send a fax, please make sure that you bring the correct fax number with you to the library, plus all the necessary dialling codes. In order for your fax to send, it had to pass through the fax machine. Therefore, please make sure that your fax is:

  • On single-sided sheets
  • Straight-edged and not crumpled.
  • Clearly written, in black and white if possible.

Receiving a fax

The charge for receiving a fax through a library fax machine is 50p per sheet. This service is available at Stalybridge, Droylsden and Dukinfield Libraries during staffed hours. If you would like to receive a fax at one of these libraries please contact the library first as they will need to take some contact details from you so that they can get in touch with you to let you know that your fax has arrived.

Please note, that you can only send or receive a fax when the library is staffed. Please see library opening times in Tameside
