The Library offers wireless printing from any device with Internet access. From a computer, click to submit your print jobs to our coin operated printers. Select the black or color printer, enter your name to identify your print jobs, select what you want to print, send the job to the processor, click print and within 45 seconds the jobs show up on the print release stations in the Library.
Accessing Your Print Job
We offer two coin operated print release stations in the Library, one is on the main floor just inside the entrance, the other is located in the Adult Lab on the lower level. Enter your name you used when sending the jobs, select your print job, enter the appropriate money or your credit card and take your prints. Print in black is $.10 per page and color printing is $.50 per page. Wireless printing does not offer double-sided jobs and does not print all file types.
