Equipment and Supplies

Info about receipt printers and printer paper and about barcode scanners are included.  Keep scrolling down.  There’s lots of info!

Receipt Paper

What to order:  Receipt printer paper:  3 1/8” x 230’, 50 rolls per carton, these rolls are BPA free.  One carton was $65.25 plus shipping, about $5 more.  Think about sharing the costs with other Shared System libraries!

Where to order: is a family-owned business in Zionsville.  Their website is  You can order online or you can call them (800-569-9849) or fax a Purchase Order to 800-406-3147.  You can also email them at

Another source:  If you want another source, let me know and I’ll try to get more info for you.

Receipt Printer:

If your receipt printer isn’t properly connected to your Horizon computer, please call the HelpDesk so they can walk you through how to do it.  You do NOT need to do a HelpRequest on SharedNet for this!  Phone # is 317-275-4900.

If you don’t have a receipt printer, and want to spend some of your library dollars to get one, here is the information.  I’m also including info on the barcode scanner so you can plan for that expense, possibly for next year.  There’s no way to predict when it will fail!
