Friends Purchase State of the Art Research Tool.

The Friends of the Library purchased a microfilm/reader/scanner/printer which will make historical and genealogy research much faster.  Scan Pro 3000 is a computer based digital scanner that can utilize 35 microfilm and microfiche to convert to a digital format that can be manipulated to print on a single sheet of paper.  Local Researcher Allen Nemec (pictured above) states “The Scan Pro 3000 is terrific!  I was able to save historical documents to my USB drive with ease.  The new machine allows you to rotate, enhance, and crop images with just a few clicks!   It is truly state of the art and the only one to my knowledge in the county.  Thank you for updating to this high tech equipment.”

Expanded In-House Books for You!

As you walk into the main entrance of the library, look to your right and you will see a large shelving unit with hardbound books and a wooden flat bed case full of paperbacks.  This has doubled our in-house books available to you for a suggested donation fee with a donation box in the center of the tall book case.  Check it out!  bargain in-house Kate Joswick, Friends board member,  is pictured above re-stocking the shelf.
