Using the Printers

Please note the following about our printers.

  • The library has four print release stations, one near the Adult Sit-Down Internet computers, one in the Computer Lab,  one in the Youth Area and one in the Vault (teen area).
  • Each print release station has both a color and a black and white printer.
  • WNPL no longer uses a “printing card” system. Instead, users pay for copies by inserting money into a cash box. Black/white copies are $.15 per page; color copies are $.50 per page.
  • All of our public computers are connected to all four print release stations.
  • Your printout will not come out of the printer until you retrieve it by paying for it at a printing station. Your print job will be held for you for 3.5 hours.
  • Only library provided paper can be used in WNPL printers & copiers.

To print a document from the library’s computers, please follow these instructions:

  1. Press the “print” button on your computer’s toolbar.  Select either “black and white” or “color” (black and white is the default). Your print job will go to all four printing stations and may be retrieved at any one of them.
  2. Click “OK” to print. The computer will verify the number of pages and the cost of the print job.
  3. Go to any one of the four printing stations. Scan your library card or guest pass, or to key in your library card number manually, tap the rectangular box labelled “card/user” on the print station display, then use the keyboard that appears on the print station monitor. If you are on a computer in the computer lab, the system will generate an ID number for you to use to retrieve your print job.
  4. The print station will list your available print jobs. Tap on the jobs you would like to print, then click the “Print” button at the bottom of the screen.
  5. To pay with cash, put your money (coins or bills) in the cash box at the print release station. Your printouts will be released from the printer, and any change will be returned at the bottom of the cash box.
