I would venture that the majority of our patrons have no other free access to computers with printers, much less to systems that will run Adobe Acrobat.  For many, it's either the library or a chain of copy shops that charges for use by the hour and page.  

We should encourage users to print their stuff at home, but to assume that they all can at present is unrealistic.
