SCANNING: The library offers several options for scanning documents. Any of our copiers are able to scan to a USB storage device. They require a $.10 deposit to use the machine. The money then can be retrieved when finished scanning. The copiers work really well for large documents (up to 12x18) and multiple pages, as they have a document feeder attachment.

We have a document scanner connected to a computer so documents can be easily uploaded to the internet. This scanner requires page-by-page scanning, and can handle up to 8.5x14 size paper.  Ask at the Reference desk for a pass to use the scanner. There is no charge for scanning.

 

KODAK PHOTO SCANNER: Have photographs you would like to save online or upload to Facebook? Our Kodak photo scanner will safely scan up to 25 photos per batch. The easy interface allows you to make some easy red-eye and color corrections at the click of the mouse and save to a USB or to the computer for uploading to the internet.  There is a flat-bed scanner for larger or more delicate photographs as well. The scanner is available for 2 hours at a time; ask at the Reference Desk for access. It's free!

 

PRINTING is available from library computers on both floors.  The charge is 10 cents per page for black & white, and 50 cents per page for color.

The library also offers free WI FI service throughout the library. A password is required to access our network; you can get access at any of the service desks, and the password is posted throughout the library. For more help, please visit a service desk.
