Printing From a Public Computer

Follow these steps to print from a library computer:

  1. Log in to a computer using you CCC username and password and open the document you want to print.
  2. Press Print or go to File --> Print. When the print preview appears, select the printer you would like to use and press to print to send the document to the printer. Select hwptp\HWC-BW for black and white or hwptp\HWC-Color for color. If you don't see the printer, select "See More..." from the list to view all the available printers. 
  3. A confirmation will pop up on your computer screen indicating the cost of the print job. Press confirm if you would like to proceed.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 if you need to print more than one job.
  5. Go to the print station and login by tapping your CCC ID on the white ID scanner. The first time you print, you will need to associate your ID card with your account by entering your CCC username and password on the touchscreen. The next time you print you'll only need to tap your ID to log in. You can also log in without your ID by typing your username and password on the touchscreen. 
  6. Once you have logged into the printer, you'll see all of your print jobs listed along with the price per job. Pay for you print jobs with cash, card, Apple Pay, or Samsung Pay. Note that paying with a card will place a temporary $5 hold on your account. Then, select the documents you want to print.
