Print Centre Guidelines

  • * Plan ahead to complete your print job 1/2 hour before the library closes.
  • * Partial prints are charged at fixed prices.
  • If you want to make more than the maximum allowance please contact us.
  • Please check often while your project is printing.
  • Printing images, models or parts of offensive items, weapons or drug paraphernalia of any size is not permitted.
  • Prints must not infringe on any provincial or federal laws, including copyright and intellectual property rights.
  • You may bring your own materials (paper, fabric, etc.) for the Cricut machine and sewing machines, but they must be compatible with Lab equipment.
  • You can create files at the library using a public internet computer or in the Collaboratory. Some design software may be available for free to download and work on from home. You can prepare your project in advance and bring your file with you.
  • This is a discovery environment; we cannot guarantee the success and quality of a printed project as this is a trial and error process!
