    Digital Media Lab

    Located inside the Main Library, the Digital Media Lab offers a wealth of cutting-edge technology for content creation. Learn more here.

    WiFi and Computers

    Free WiFi is available throughout the Main Library and West Branch.

    Public computers are located on the 2nd floor of the Main Library at the top of the central staircase. Computers are also available in the Teens Area on the first floor. You do not have to be a CCPL cardholder to use these computers.

    The Digital Media Lab at the Main Library offers iMacs with creative software.

    View the library's Internet Use Policy here.

    Copying

    Copiers are located in the Copy, Scan, & Print areas on the Main Library's 1st and 2nd floors. Black-and-white copies are 10¢ per page. Cash is required, but the copier will give you change after you've made at least one copy.

    Color copying is not available, but you can scan and print in color. (See the "Scanning" section below.)

    Printing

    Black-and-white printouts and copies are 10¢ per page. Color printouts are 50¢ per page.

    Printing from Home

    In addition to being able to print directly from the public computers on the Main Library's 2nd floor, you can also send print jobs wirelessly and pick them up at one of the Main Library's two print stations.

    Sending Your Print Job

    If you wish to print in black and white, email or text your file to bw@carmelclaylibrary.org.

    If you wish to print in color, email or text your file to color@carmelclaylibrary.org.

    You can also upload files at tbs.eprintit.com/portal/#/ppl/upload/carmelclaypl.

    You can also print via the ePRINTit App available on the Google Play Store or via Apple's App Store.  When selecting a print pickup location in the app, search for the library by zip code (46032) or by tapping "Nearby" if you are close to the library.

    You will receive an email or text notification when your print job is ready to be retrieved from the Copy, Scan, & Print area at the Main Library. Depending on the size of your file, it may take several minutes before you receive a confirmation message. The print queue is cleared nightly, so jobs must be picked up the same day.
     

    Picking Up Your Print Job

    Go to one of the two printing stations in the Copy, Scan, & Print areas at the Main Library (located near the entrance to the Teens Area on the 1st floor or next to the public computers on the 2nd floor). The following is your print job name, and that's what you'll enter into the kiosk:

    If you sent your print job by text, the print job name you'll enter is your phone number without spaces (e.g. 3178143900).
    If you sent your print job by email, the print job name you'll enter is the first part of your email address before the @ symbol (e.g. johndoe instead of johndoe@gmail.com).

    You may pay for your printout at the station with either cash or credit card.

    Scanning

    Scanners for saving a digital copy of a document or image are located in the Copy, Scan, & Print areas on the Main Library's 1st and 2nd floors. You can choose to email your scanned file to yourself or someone else* or you can save it to your own USB drive. If you want, you can then print the file in black-and-white or color. (See "Printing" section above.)

    Our scanners offer both a document feed option for scanning individual sheets of paper as well as a 12" x 17" flatbed scanner.

    * Although the library does not offer a fax machine, the scanner can serve a similar function if you have an email address for the person to whom you wish to send the file.

    3D Printing

    3D printing is offered in the Digital Media Lab at the Main Library. Learn all about it here.

    Audio & Video Recording

    The Digital Media Lab at the Main Library will has iMac stations for editing audio and video. Beginning later this fall, the DML will offer two audio recording rooms and a video recording room that can be reserved by cardholders in the CCPL system.
