The new printer can print 52 pages per minute, and do double-sided printing, too. The paper tray can hold over a ream of paper, so you'll be less likely to run out of paper while waiting for that English assignment to finish printing. No more long lines for the printer (hopefully!).
Other printers in the library will be shuffled around, but in a good way. The new printer and the HP color printer will now sit outside the library office. Study Rooms 1 and 2 will have their own printers, while the small computer lab will have two higher capacity Dell printers.
Printing is free for White Mountains Community College students, and $.10 per page for all other library users. Color copies are $.25 per page for community members.
Stop by and check out the new equipment! Ask for help with double sided printing.
