The library strives to meet the research and homework needs of our patrons, and this includes offering basic office supplies and services.
At both libraries, printing from computer workstations to a B&W printer is $0.15 per page. The main library also has a color printer and copier, located on the lower level, which cost $0.25 per page.
If you have any trouble with the printers or pay-for-print station, or if you have an unusually large file to print, please see the desk staff for assistance.
Print From Anywhere
The library also has a Print From Anywhere service, which you can use to upload or email your print job – from home, your phone, anywhere – and pick it up at the library. Our reference staff are happy to help!
Public photocopiers are also available at both libraries, for items up to 8.5″ x 11″. At the main library, there is one on the main level across from the Circulation Desk, and one on the lower level next to the print station. The cost is $0.15 per copy. The copier on the lower level offers full-color copies for $0.25 each.
