Use Your KDL Card for Griffins Tickets

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

It’s hockey season again! From now through April, use your Kent District Library card to get a great deal on Grand Rapids Griffins hockey tickets. At every Sunday and Wednesday home game, fans who present a local public library card — such as your KDL card — at the Van Andel Arena box office on game day will get a lower bowl ticket for just $10! That’s a savings of $7! Limit four tickets per card.

Sunday and Wednesday home games include:

Wednesday, November 11
Wednesday, December 9
Sunday, December 27
Sundays, January 3 and 17
Wednesday, January 6
Sunday, February 21
Wednesday, February 24
Wednesday, March 31
Wednesday, April 7

Tickets are subject to availability.

Katie L. will be making a special appearance at the game on Wednesday, February 24. Be sure to stop by the KDL information table to say hi!

Sign up for a Kent District Library card at your local KDL branch. And if you already have one, don’t forget to use it!

Printing Only What You Want

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

Here’s a tip to help you be sustainable and save some money.  Use less paper by printing out only the sections of documents or emails that you truly need.

For Windows Operating System

  1. Highlight the area of text or pictures that you wish to print.
  2. Click the print command to bring up the print dialog box.
  3. Look for the area that says “Selection” and click the button in front of it.
  4. Click OK. Only the section you selected should print.

Print box Windows

For Mac Operating System

It’s a little more tricky for a Mac.

For printing a selection of something off the internet….

  1. Highlight the area of text or pictures that you wish to print.
  2. Click the print command in your browser (ie Firefox, Safari, etc.) to bring up the print dialog box.
  3. Click the “Copies & Pages” drop down area, select the name of your browser near the bottom of the list.
  4. In new box, click the check box under Options section – “Print selection only.”
  5. Click Print. Only the section you selected should print.

To print selections from anything other than the internet using Mac OS X Tiger or Leopard, you need to download a Print Selection Service freeware program.  I use the one from this website… http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/51675
