At the Traverse City (Main) Library, please follow this link. This new system allows for printing from mobile devices in addition to personal laptops.

3.) Once the installer has been downloaded, run it as you would any other program.
4.) When the program is running if you attempt to print, you will see that you have new printers available.
5.) When you try to print to these new printers a dialog box will appear prompting you for a user ID (this may take a minute or two if you are printing a large document). You can enter anything you want into this prompt as long as you can remember it. Click the OK button to move forward.
6.) The next screen that appears will let you know how much your print will cost. You can click the OK button to move forward or the Cancel button to cancel the print.
7.) After you click the OK button you can pay for your print at the print release station in the Public Computing Center at the Woodmere branch or at the circulation desk if your are printing from a branch or member library location. The user ID you entered as part of step #6 will be used to identify your print job. After you have paid, your job will begin printing.
