Digital Conversion Station

Coming Spring 2018 to the Central Library!

Our new digital conversion station will allow you to:

  • Turn those old VHS and VHS-C tapes into a digital file you can save and/or burn to DVD
  • Scan old photos, negative and slides
  • Get data off 3 1/2 floppy disks and media cards
  • Convert old cassette and vinyl tracks to mp3
  • See all available equipment and user manuals

Conversion Station Guidelines

  • We do not provide any method to save your files–please bring a flash drive, memory card, external hard drive, or blank disk to save your project on. We do sell 2GB flash drives for $8.
  • Converting is ‘real time’ so if it’s a 2-hour VHS, it will take 2 hours.  You will not be able to leave a converting job and come back, so please plan accordingly.
  • Appointments will be available for 1-4 hour time slots and an initial appointment with a library staff member will be required beforehand to get familiar with the equipment. 
  • Headphones (either yours or those provided) must be used at all times.
  • Users must abide by our Code of Conduct.
  • The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. The person using this equipment is responsible for any infringement.
