New Scanner at the Library
We have a new scanner at the library! This scanner will convert your old slides and negatives to digital format onto a DVD or flash drive. You can even email the images to your friends and family. Images can be edited to lighten or darken the picture, enhance the color, and tweak overall effect. Library staff can help you get started. Reserve a two-hour session with the reference librarian.
