"A print management system will help defray costs for paper and toner and reduce recycling costs due to the amount of wasted paper printed every day," said Library Director Carol Mahoney.

"Patrons will pay to print their own materials so they will be more conscious about the number of pages they want to purchase. Many libraries report that the volume of printing decreases between 30 percent and 70 percent as patrons begin to use the 'print preview' function and print only what they need," said Mahoney.

"We want to be environmentally conscious and responsible stewards of Town resources during a time when budgets are tight," said Mahoney.

The Library will charge 10 cents per page for black and white printing and 50 cents for color printing from Library computers, which is consistent with the charges for photocopying printed materials. As more information becomes available in electronic form, patrons are choosing to print research material from online references rather than photocopy printed material.
