Community Scanning Days

Digitize your family history at one of our Community Scanning Days hosted on the first Thursday of every month.

Bring in your family photo collections and library staff will assist you with scanning. You will take home a USB drive (and a link to a digital download) with digitized memories to share with your friends and family.

Appointments will last up to 1 hour. Each patron can scan approximately 100-150 photographs per visit, depending on size. If you need more time, we can discuss a follow-up visit.

Please remove all pictures from albums and sleeves before your appointment. We can accommodate materials up to 11 x 17 inches. We cannot digitize fragile or torn photographs, bound materials, slides, negatives, home movies, or audio cassettes at this time.
