Introducing our Mobile Printing Service

The library now offers a new Internet-based printing service that allows you to print from any Internet-connected computer, laptop or mobile device to one of the library's public color laser printers. This new service utilizes a user-friendly web-based interface from which you can send your print jobs from anyplace in the world. The print service supports the printing of web pages and over 100 different file formats including popular formats like Microsoft Office Word and Excel documents and PDF files. Like print jobs sent from our public computers, each day you will be allowed to print up to 5 pages free. Each page after 5 is a charge of 10 cents a page. Once you send your print job from the web portal, go to the Circulation Desk within 2 hours to retrieve and pay, if necessary, for your print job. You can access the new service from our mobile printing page
