If you are paying with cash, you can release your print job(s) using the print release station and coin box located next to the printer. The coin box accepts U.S. coins and bills up to $20. Please avoid using large bills to pay for small print jobs as change is given in coins only. Large bills can be changed at the Circulation Desk. Print jobs remain in the queue for 48 hours or until released.

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

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

The BookScan 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, printed, or saved to a USB flash drive. The BookScan Station is connected to two scanners. One is an iVina FB6080E scanner, which has an 11" x 17" flatbed surface with a beveled edge as well as an automatic document feeder. The other is a Fujitsu ScanSnap SV600 overhead projector, which is capable of scanning thick documents and three-dimensional objects up to an inch think.

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.
