Copy Cards Eliminate Fumbling for Change

Copy card vending machines dispense new cards and “add-on” copying credit to existing cards.
The Main Library has installed “copy card” machines to alleviate the need to wait in line for change or fumble with a handful of coins when making photocopies. In addition to photocopy machines, the copy cards may be used on computer printers that have the debit card readers.

For an initial $1 purchase, a patron receives a plastic copy card. Half of the dollar is a one-time charge for the card itself; the other 50 cents is credited to the card for making copies and prints (15 cents each copy). A patron may, at any time, add “copy credit” to these debit cards in $1, $5, $10, and $20 increments. No “change” is given when inserting any of these bills.

XCP debit card readers can be found at various photocopiers and printers.
The card may also be used with the color photocopy machine ($1 a copy) located in the Arts & Humanities Center on the second floor. Popular with students and business people, the color copier delivers crisp, brilliant copies of such items as maps, flags, graphs, and photographs.
