New tech available at Nevada County’s Madelyn Helling Library

Submitted to The Union

The Madelyn Helling Library has a new PC reservation system called Envisionware, according to a release.

There is also a new printer and a new system for printing documents and scanning at the Madelyn Helling.

Library patrons can still reserve a PC the day of their visit via the Envisionware print release computer but they can also simply sit down at any available PC and log in. Available PCs are identified with a green “available” notice on the screen.

With Envisionware, patrons are given two 1-hour sessions of computer time on the Madelyn Helling Library desktop computers. The library also has MacBooks and Chromebooks available for in-library checkout.

For a limited time, patrons will be able to print in both black and white and color for 15 cents. Mobile printing is now available via PrinterOn. On any computer, in any browser, simply navigate to, enter an email address, and upload desired documents. Patrons can even print from mobile devices via the PrinterOn App or via email with documents attached to and print at the print release station with their email address.

The Madelyn Helling Library is also now offering free document scanning through the print release station. Patrons are required to bring their own flash drive, which they will scan to and then send the document out via email. To scan, patrons must first open the copy/scanner by depositing 15 cents into the print vending device. After scanning is complete, the vending device will refund the deposited money.

For more information, call the circulation desk at 530-265-7050.
