How do I print in the library?
LaGrange College uses the WEPA cloud printing systems. There are two (2) printers at the library: One on the main floor near the stairway and one in the 24hr study which can be accessed 24/7 with your student ID.
There are several ways in which one can send a document to the printer. See the WEPA webpage to learn about them all. From that same webpage, you can log in to your WEPA account, check your balance, and add funds, if needed. Remember that there is a per-page charge for printing, and the college allows you a starting balance of $15 dollars at the beginning of the semester. You can add funds to your account if you go over.
Once you have sent your document, go to any print kiosk on campus to retrieve your document using your LC credentials or the six (6) digit code for your print request. If you don't have the code, don't worry. Just use your LC credentials to retrieve your document.
The kiosks can print in color, black and white, and double-sided if you so choose.
Yes, sometimes these printers run into problems. If there is an error, please call the 1-800 number written on the kiosk for assistance. The customer service representatives are super helpful and answer right away. We promise!
If you're new to printing with WEPA, we know it can get a little confusing. Ask at the circulation desk for assistance! We're pros now!
*NOTE: Printing services are available for our community and alumni users. You will need a credit or debit card in order to pay for printing your documents, and a service charge will appear each time you swipe your card. Please see an assistant at the circulation desk so that we can show you how to print as a guest.
I am not a student or staff member at LaGrange College, but can I still use the library?
Yes! If you are not an LC student or staff, you are welcome to come to the library, study, or use our books on the shelf. If you would like to be able to check out books, you may purchase a Community User Card at the circulation desk for $35 per year. This card allows you to check out 5 items at a time with your card. The card must be renewed each year. Please stop by the circulation desk on the main floor when you arrive so that we can assist you.
