One of the most frequent requests at all Fontana Regional Library locations has been from patrons who wish to print their documents from their own laptop or mobile device. The library has listened and now all Fontana Regional Library locations in Macon, Jackson, and Swain Counties have remote printing services available. This means that community members can send a document, file, or photo from their own laptop, tablet, or smartphone to print at a library printer. Print jobs can be sent from inside the library or from any location. That means that you can print from your own home and then pick up your document at the Library Print Release Station. Jobs are held for up to 3 days and are printed at the library when the user comes in to release and pay for the job.
Costs are 25 cents per page for either color or black-and-white, and the Print Release Stations accept cash only in small bills up to $10. 00. For more details about how to use this service, please call your local library or visit fontanalib.org/print.
This service is made possible by funding from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) as administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (IMLS grant number LS-246155-OLS-20).
