Wireless printing is here! No more logging in to library computers solely to print - now you can send documents, photos, and webpages to the library printer from your phone, laptop, home computer, or even from halfway around the world. After sending your print job, you have 72 hours to stop by the library and pay before your file is deleted from our system. Your documents won't print until you come to the library and pay for your print job. Our standard printing prices apply: $0.15 per page for black and white printing, $0.50 for color. See library staff for more information.
