Wi-Fi Printing – Frequently Asked Questions

Can I print while using Wi-Fi?

Yes. Wi-Fi printing is available in all TRL libraries.

What is required to use Wi-Fi printing?

You need a Timberland Library Card, Internet Card, or Visitor Pass and be using a laptop, tablet or other mobile device with a current web browser.

How does Wi-Fi printing work?

Open MyPrintCenter and log in using your Timberland Library Card, Internet Card or Visitor Pass. You can then upload a file and proceed to any Timberland Regional Library and release the job at a print release station. You can also print via the mobile apps or by sending an email.

What kind of files can I print?

The following document types can be uploaded and printed:

  • Word - .DOC, .DOCX and .RTF files
  • Excel - .XLS and .XLSX files
  • PowerPoint - .PPT and .PPTX files
  • PDF - .PDF files
  • Text - .TXT files
  • Image files - BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG and TIF files

How do I upload documents to the Pharos Print Center?

  2. Enter your library card number and PIN when prompted.
  3. Click the Upload icon.
  4. Browse to and select the document to be printed.

Can I print messages from a webpage?

No. At this time TRL Wi-Fi printing does not support this. If the site lets you download information to a PDF file, you can save the file to your device and then upload and print the PDF file. If this will not work you can use one of the library’s Internet computers to print.

Do Wi-Fi print jobs count against my 100 free pages a week?

Yes. Pages printed count against the 100 free pages allowed per week. You will be charged $0.10/side printed for additional pages.

Can I use Wi-Fi printing when the library is closed?

The MyPrintCenter web application is always available, but print jobs can only be released during local library open hours.

Can I print using my smart phone?

There are Pharos Print apps to download for iOS and Android devices. When setting up the app use "printing.trl.org" for the server address and "443" for the server port. 

Can I print a range of pages for long documents?
