    How Do I Pay For My Prints?

    • Printing costs 10¢ per page.
    • The Internet Commons and Copy Center allow prints to be paid for by Cash-card, coin or cash. All other locations within the Central Library require a Cash-card.
    • To purchase a Cash-card:
      • Cash-cards dispensers are available in the Copy Center.
      • A $1 bill will purchase a card with 50¢ credit on it.
      • Cash-cards are re-usable.
      • Add more value to cards with $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills.
      • Re-INSERT a Cash-card first before adding money to it.
