So my darling Noodle this fall will be entering the grade where there's lots of project-style homework to do. That means graphics. That means printing stuff.

That means my wonderful and reliable black-and-white laser printer is not going to cut it.

That means I have to venture into the world of printers and printer supplies, the Mos Eisley of the computer-sales universe, where what I thought would be the kids' college fund will be eaten in ten minutes flat.

Unless there's some kind of way around walking sheeplike into the slavering jaws of the toner-cartridge-industrial there?

I thought maybe one of my local libraries might have a color printer handy, but no dice. What are some of the available workarounds? (If you have some local Hudson Valley knowledge, do share.)
