How to use the wireless printing:
It’s easy to use the wireless printing option at the library. You can print from your laptop, phone, or other wireless device. You’ll need to send the item you want printed via attachment in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Xerox will then send you a reply email with simple directions to follow.
Nothing will be printed without putting your Xerox information into our printer. Regular printing charges apply to wireless printing.
We have a free photo editor and web design editor on our public computers. They’re great tools for productivity, but they can be hard to learn how to use. If you want practice with photo editing or web design, you can check out the tutoriols here. You can also download the programs to your own computer.
- GNU Image Manipulation Program: The advanced GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) is similar to Photoshop. It’ll allow you to edit photos most ways you’d like. Tutorial | Download
- Blue Griffon: Blue Griffon is a powerful web editor. It’s not a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor, so you’ll be working with the code directly. This takes more practice, but it’s much more powerful. Tutorial | Download
- If you want a WYSIWYG editor, we recommend Wix.
