Transfer Station

The Library is pleased to announce the addition of a Transfer Station to our Community Technology lab. Patrons may bring their VHS tapes and convert content to a DVD free of charge. Bring your own DVD to use, or purchase one for $0.50 at the Circulation Desk.

Guidelines for Use:

  1. Uses DVD-R Format
  2. No registration necessary. Should we find that there is a waiting line we will begin a sign-up sheet.
  3. Plan for the “run time” of your VHS as it transfers in real-time.

After you have transferred your material, use our editing computer loaded with Adobe Premier for movie editing.

The addition of the Transfer Station will allow patrons to relax in the Library while digitizing their memories.

A special THANK YOU to the Corn Boil Committee for donating the funds to make this possible.
