How do I print?
Depends on a couple of different factors. (Bonus info: 10 cents per page. By default, the printer is B&W, but you can change to color. )
Factor A: It’s a document on my flash drive.
Solution: Open the flash drive folder (it’s usually Drive:E) and then open the document you need to print. Look for the printer icon or the print command under the File menu. Make sure you know how many pages are in your document before you print.
Factor C: It’s an article on Wikipedia or some other website.
Solution: We recommend using Copy and Paste to put the desired text in to a Microsoft Word document.Factor D: I just used your computer to type a resume (flyer, book report, or something else.)Solution: Look around. The instructions for printing are taped to the sides of every computer desk.As always, if you need more help, please come to the Information Desk. That is literally why we are here. 🙂
Where are my prints?
The Print Station is near the Checkout Desk. There is a long table against the wall. It is the monitor on the left side of that table.
- Go to the monitor and click on “Release Print Job.”
- Put in the number you used to sign in to the computer. It’s either a 3 digit guest number or your entire library card number.
- Click on the print jobs that you’re ready to pick up.
- You don’t need to release jobs that you don’t want anymore.
- The total payment is listed on the right side, just above the list of prints.
- VERY IMPORTANT: If the total is more than $5, you will need to print in at least two batches. The machine can not handle more than $5, it will throw a temper tantrum and refuse to work.
- Click on Print on the upper left side.
- Insert your money into the machine underneath. It will take nickels, dimes, quarters, ones, and fives.
- Click the square next to “Pay from vending device.”
- Collect your papers and any change.
Can I send a fax?
Yes! Indeed, you can. Faxes are 25 cents per page.
It’s the middle monitor on the long table at the front of the library. The same monitor can also Scan to Email and Scan to a USB drive. Both of those options are free.
- The monitor is a touch screen.
- By default, it uses the flat-bed scanner on the left. But you can change it to the document feeder on the right.
- The document feeder can also scan double-sided.
If you need any help, please ask.
