May I use my cell phone to receive and make calls while I am in the library?

We request that you set your cell phone and other electronic devices to silent or vibrate mode while in the library. If you need to make or answer a call on your cell phone, please keep your conversation short and speak softly. Long conversations should be conducted in either the front (Main Street) lobby, or the back (Parking Lot) lobby.

The magazine/newspaper I need is on microfiche/microfilm. Can I print the article I need?

You can print from both the microfilm and microfiche readers. Ask a reference librarian for assistance.

Does the library have a document scanner available for public use?

Yes, we have two scanners attached to a Scan Station in the Reference Area that you are welcome to use on a first come, first served basis.

The Scan Station consists of a touchscreen PC with easy-to-use software that guides you through the process of scanning books, documents, photos and small objects to a variety of formats (PDF, searchable PDF, JPEG, TIFF, Word, HTML), which can then be emailed, saved to a USB flash drive, or uploaded to a cloud storage service. The Scan Station is connected to two scanners. One is a flatbed scanner, which has an 11" x 17" flatbed surface with a beveled edge. The other is a scanner with automatic document feeder, which is capable of scanning large documents, stacks of photographs, and ID cards. The Scan Station is also capable of text translation to and from many different languages and text to speech conversion.

This service was made possible by a donation from the Friends of Memorial Hall Library.    

The library also has a film scanner that can be used to digitize 35 mm negatives and slides.
