Ever been to the library and wanted to print directly from your laptop or cell phone? Well I am glad to tell you that your dreams have come true! The Akron-Summit County Public Library is now offering mobile printing through PrinterOn. This service allows you  to print documents, images, and PDF’s or print directly from the Internet on your laptop or cell phone. Pages will print on 8.5 X 11  letter size paper at a cost of $o.05/page for black and white and $0.25/page for color.

The PrinterOn mobile app can be downloaded via Apple, Android, Blackberry, or Barnes & Noble (Nook) devices. The service can also be used on Windows tablets and laptops. Below is more information on this two part service:

 Mobile Webpage – This page allows users to submit a file or URL for printing at the Print Release Station. It can be used by any device or operating system that has a web browser. Also, the “PrintWhere” software can be installed on any personal Windows Laptop; making the printing experience much easier for frequent users. A link to this software download is available on the Mobile Printing Webpage.
 Mobile Apps – A Mobile App is available for all the top mobile devices; including Apple iOS, Android, and Windows. The mobile version offers a much better user experience on your device than the webpage.

Ice Cream Cones

Today we celebrate the cone shaped pastry that allows us to eat ice cream without a bowl or spoon also known as the ice cream cone. On this day 111 years ago, the ice cream  cone was invented  by Italo Marchiony, a New York business  owner that emigrated from Italy in the the late 1800′s. Marchiony owned a small fleet of pushcarts, which later inspired him to develop a cone that would hold the lemon ice he sold from his carts. The first ice cream cone Marchiony created was made of paper , but was later redesigned using a pastry. Over a century later we continue to use the ice cream cone and  if it were not for this simple yet tasty cone we would not be able to take ice cream on the go! So in honor of today, why not celebrate the invention and the last days of summer with a scoop of ice cream in a crisp and delicious ice cream cone.
