The Library has 14 public computers for use when we are open. You start at the Sign In Station. If you have an assigned password, use that. Otherwise, use a guest pass, available upon request. There are limits for length of sessions, so check with staff. The computers are networked to a b&w/color printer. After you chose what you print, and send it off to be printed, you must next sign into the print release station. From there you can see your print jobs, delete ones you don’t want, etc. You must pay the coin-op next to the printer before you hit print. Feel free to ask library staff for assistance.
