Using the Library Computers to Print
The library has public internet terminals that patrons are welcome to use in either in the Adult Services or Youth Services departments of the library depending on age.
Your library card number or a guest pass is needed to log on to a computer terminal. Guess passes are available upon request at the service desks.

- All printing done through ePRINTit is retrieved when the library is open.
- Your print job will require your username or library card number/guest pass number, and payment before the job can be printed.
- The cost to print b/w or color is 10 cents per page. You may pay by cash, credit, or debit (MasterCard or Visa). Apple Pay and Samsung Pay are also available.
- Unclaimed jobs are deleted after 24 hours, until then your print will remain in the queue.
- There is a 200-page print maximum per print submission.
