Self-Service Scanning Stations

The Library's self-service scanning station provides an easy way to convert paper documents, photos, and drawings into a digital format.

The "Simple Scan" station is an easy-to-use touchscreen scanning device that scans, saves, and sends all your documents, photos, magazines, and more. The Simple Scan Station can automatically auto-crop, auto-straighten, and auto-orient each page scanned.
