Let’s Get Digital!

Do you have any old VHS tapes, film negatives, or home cassette tapes that you want to look at again? At the Central Library we can help you convert your old film to digital format!

The reference staff at Central can help you

  • Scan your photographs, using a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX100 wireless mobile scanner
  • Convert film negatives and slides using a Wolverine F2D Mighty 20MP 7-in-1 film to digital converter
  • Convert your old mix tapes and cassettes to MP3
  • Transfer video from VHS tape to a digital format

You have the option of receiving a brief tutorial and continuing on your own or you can get step-by-step assistance the entire time. For your appointment, bring your film/VHS/cassette tapes/photographs, and an USB/SD storage drive of at least 8 GB (preferred) or have a Cloud account to upload to Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, iCloud, Box, Amazon Cloud Drive.

Scanning is by appointment at the Central Library- call 434.979.7151 x 4 or email reference@jmrl.org to set up a time.
