Wireless Printing

Printing is now available via the wireless connection. Please go to Wireless Printing page for instruction.

We have made every effort to make wireless access available throughout the library, but you may encounter some “dead” spots where wireless reception may be limited. If you have trouble accessing the Internet or staying connected move to a different location within the library.
