Adding Money to Your ID Card: Instructions

You add funds to your ID card to use the copy machines.

Using the Copy Machines

Go to and enter your MSM username and password (not your Library login information).

Once you choose “Login,” you’ll be shown your account, with your current balance and a transaction history. To refill your balance, tap or click “Budget Recharge."

Enter the amount you would like to add in whole dollar amounts (the minimum amount is $1), and choose “Next."


You will be redirected to PayPal’s website to finish the transaction. This might take a minute--don't refresh the page. You can use most major credit or debit cards, or a PayPal account if you already have one set up. The amount you're adding to your account is shown in the top right-hand corner.

Once you have completed checkout, you can tap “Return to Merchant” on the PayPal page to return to your account summary.

Your balance and transaction history will show the new information.
