Print from the Public Computers

IMG_1589Print Release Terminal

To print from the public computers, you must first load money on to your library card at the Library Payment Center. All print jobs are sent to the Print Release Station located on the lower level copy/print room next to the elevator.

When you select print, a pop-up screen will tell you the number of pages you will print and the total cost. Select the right printer for your job: BlackWhite OR Color. Black and white copies are 10 cents per page and color copies are 50 cents per page. You have two options to decline a print job (at the computer AND at the Print Release Station). Please note that NO REFUNDS will be given for pages printed that you do not want.

There are 6 virtual printers at each workstation:

Black and White – 8.5″ x 11″ paper, single sided
Black and White (Duplexing) – 8.5″ x 11″ paper, double sided
Black and White (Legal) – 8.5″ x 14″ paper, single sided

Color – 8.5″ x 11″ paper, single sided
Color (Duplexing)  – 8.5″ x 11″ paper, double sided
Color (Legal) – 8.5″ x 14″ paper, single sided

At the Print Release Station, find your print job and highlight it to print. All print jobs remain active until the close of that day.

If you need to use special paper for printing resumes or other important materials, you can use MPT Tray One, but the Library cannot be held responsible if someone else prints on your paper.

You must add money to your library card or visitor card at the Print Release Terminal in the Copy/Print Room.

Clicking on “Deposit Account” will allow you to add money in increments from 10 cents up to $5.00. You should know your  PIN (Personal Identification Number) to add money to your library card. Your balance will be shown. All change is inserted into the Coin Box, and then you will receive a receipt after the process is completed.

Visitor Cards/Guest Passes can pay for printing “as you go”. It is advisable to bring small bills if you’re planning to print from a Visitor Card/Guest Pass.
