Remote Wireless Printing, From You to Us

JULY 2014 UPDATE:  We have changed remote wireless printing services.  For new instructions, click here.



Did you know that you may now do remote wireless printing through the Library's website?  You do now.

When you're ready to print from your laptop or other wireless device, go to this web page.  It looks like this (below).

Click to Bigify


Just a few easy steps:

  • Choose black-and-white or color printing;
  • In the User Info box, select a name that uniquely identifies your print job, so you can find it on the public printer release station at the Library;
  • Select the file name that you wish to print;
  • Click the arrow button.
Then this screen should appear.

On this screen you may select the number of copies, whether all pages or a particular page range is to be printed, and page orientation.  There is also a drop-down menu for document type.  When you're ready to proceed, you would then click the arrow button.

Click to Bigify


On this screen you may check the number of pages in your print order, as well as the cost.  When you're ready to send the print order, click the green button in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.

What next?  When you visit the Library, go to the public printer (across from the computer lab, and directly in front of the entrance to Youth Services) and visit the printer release station, at which you will pay your money due, release the print job, and then it will print to the public printer.  It sounds more complicated when you write it out like this, but it's really a simple series of quick steps.  Library staff will be happy to assist.

You may send your printer jobs from anywhere that you have Internet accessibility.  No special software is needed.  Everything you'll need is on our website.

Printing is now a simple matter of done and done!  Just another great Library service for you to enjoy.



Wireless Printing is Plenty Cool,

P.S.  Photocopying reminded me of "Copycat," by the Cranberries, from the album Bury the Hatchet (1999).
