Photo and document scanning is now available at the Reference Desk.

We are always looking for more ways to provide as many services as we can offer, (I prefer for our Patrons/Customers to be as spoiled as possible).

Now we have purchased an HP 5610 All-In-One Printer/Scanner/Copier. The unit does a very good job scanning photographs etc., but its strong point (in my humble opinion) is to take a document and save it in a .PDF format. It will do OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and save it into a text file, but the print needs to be quite clear on the original document or the scan spits out garbage.

Just ask for this service at the Reference Desk. If no one is there to assist you, please inquire about it at the Front Desk.
