To Print From a Mobile Device:

Mobile phones and tablets can make use of the same uploading method shown above for home computers, but it can sometimes be difficult to find the items to print on your device. The alternative and recommended method of printing from a mobile device is to install the Smart Alec app, available for both Android and Apple devices. Note that there is no guest option in the mobile app, a library card account is required.

  1. Install the Smart Alec app, available for both Android and Apple devices, and sign in:

  2. To Print From an Android Device, simply select Print (often found under the three vertical dots in the upper right corner), tap on the printer type at the top of the screen to select "SmartAlec Printer," and then press the printer icon at the top right of the preview area to submit your print job.

  3. To Print From an Apple Device, click on the Share icon and select Print (not AirPrint). Then, either press and hold on the preview area or pinch zoom to convert to a PDF. Then click on the share icon at the bottom of the screen, tap More, and tap on SmartAlecPrint to activate it. Simply press Done, then SmartAlecPrint to submit your print. (Click HERE for details)
