How to Use the Printers

Introduction

Locus has two printers / scanners. One black & white printer (with color scanning) and one color printer.

Members can currently print up to 50 black & white pages per month at no charge. Please keep track of how many pages you print and let us know if you print more than 50 pages during any month.

Prices for black & white printing beyond 50 pages and for color printing are listed in the table on the Membership page in the Membership & Services section of the website.
