Digital Reader/Printer and Flatbed Scanner
The Civic Center Branch has three digital scanners for scanning microfilm or microfiche. Scanned images maybe saved to a flash drive as a pdf file or as a graphic (e.g., jpg) file. Images may also be printed or emailed.
Images from materials such as paper documents, books, photos, and slides may be scanned with the flatbed scanner. Scanned images must be saved to a flash drive; they may be emailed from one of the branch’s public internet stations.
For instruction on the use of this equipment, please call the Information Desk at 473.6058 for an appointment.
