28 Aug Printing at the Library: Easy Solutions using the PrinterOn App!
The library is happy to provide a cheap and easy way to print out your important documents (like a resume), coupons, pictures, or almost anything else from one of our 40 new public computers.
Of course, you can use these computers in the library to print, but why not skip a step?
We all get a little busy sometimes and our PrinterOn service can be a great solution for when you are in a hurry.
From the comfort of your own home you can download the PrinterOn App to your smartphone (iOS/Apple and Android) and upload your documents. Or, login from your home computer or laptop using this link on the PGTPL website: https://www.printeron.net/pgtpl/webprint.
We suggest using your name or library card number for your LoginID, as this is what you’ll use to retrieve your job.
Your documents will be ready to print when you arrive at the library! Your uploads will be held in a queue under your LoginID. At the Print Release Station, type your LoginID into the Card/User space.
Our staff will be happy to assist you if you have questions when you arrive. We even have handy tip sheets available at the front desk!
