Remote Printing

You can print from your home computer/pad/phone to a small, B/W, library printer. This printer is a suitable for drafts, boarding passes, and the like. It is not appropriate for final papers you plan to submit or for résumés.

Printing Files From Your Mobile Device

  1. Point your browser to our mobile print interface: tinyurl.com/tpprinter
  2. Enter your e-mail address. This helps us identify your print job.
  3. Choose the document you want to print.
  4. Print.
  5. Come into the library and pay us 20¢ per page at the front desk.
  6. We will release your print job and it will print here at the desk. Note: the printer is black & white, no color. If you want to print in color, a color printer is available to people logged on to the computer stations in Room A and Room B.

Printing E-Mail Messages and Attachments

  1. To print an email message or attachment, simply forward your email to: 300607601711@printspots.com or tpml-library-bw@printspots.com.
  2. You will be sent a release code for the email message and each attachment. Use these release codes to retrieve your documents. Email forwarding is ideal for online email portals such as Yahoo!, Hotmail or Google Mail.
  3. Why? Most online email services require that you log-in to access email. If you provide the URL (web address) of your message, the printing services will be blocked because your email login name and password are not known by the print system.
  4. Come into the library and pay us 20¢ per page at the front desk. Be sure to bring your release codes.
  5. We will release your print job and it will print here at the desk. Note: the printer is black & white, no color.

Printing Boarding Passes

    Boarding passes are printed from the airline web pages. If the airline allows you to save a copy of the boarding pass as a PDF file, then:

  1. Save the PDF file to disk
  2. Print the PDF file using tinyurl.com/tpprinter
  3. Come into the library and pay us 20¢ per page at the front desk.
  4. We will release your print job and it will print here at the desk. Note: the printer is black & white, no color.
  5. If you can't save the pass as a pdf file, please look through the boarding pass instructions here. It might be easier to come in and log on to one of the public computer stations in Room A or Room B.
