In this day of instant communication, there are many ways to send information from one place to another. The Carnegie Library can help in providing access to some of these methods.
The library’s public computers allow users to take advantage of Facebook and other social media, as well as email and internet surfing. While the library does not host email accounts, all public computers are internet-accessible.
Also are available is fax service. For only $.75 per page, patrons are able to send both local and long distance faxes. Cover sheets can be included for no extra charge. However, sometimes faxing is not a preferred method, nor is it always the cheapest.
The library also provides the option to scan and send documents for only $.10 per page. In addition to cost savings, there are other advantages to scanning a document. By scanning a document, an email is sent with the documents included as a PDF attachment.
Unlike a fax which only produces a hard copy, scans can remain in an email account as long as the receiver desires. Users can also scan a document to themselves to view or to send to as many people as desired, while always maintaining a copy in an email.
When sending documents, always keep both methods in mind when deciding which is the most efficient (and cost-efficient) method.
