Mobile Printing

Did your printer at home run out of ink?  Are you inside the library with your laptop, tablet or smartphone and need to print something?  Give the Library’s Pharos MobilePrint system a try.  Using one of the two methods outlined below, you can send documents or photos to MobilePrint and then release them at the Print Release Station located behind the Reference Desk.  You’ll need your library card number and PIN to use the system.  Printing costs ten cents per black and white page and thirty cents per color page.  MobilePrint will work with cards issued by any one of these 52 libraries in Nassau.

NOTE: Funds can be added to your account by using the Add Value Station located near the Reference Desk copier.  Funds deposited cannot be used at other libraries.  Un-released MobilePrint jobs will be purged after 24 hours.
