Memory Lab

The Memory Lab is a grant-funded program that enables people to digitize and preserve their histories. It’s a Do-It-Yourself model, meaning step-by-step instructions are provided, but you control the process from start to finish. You bring your materials and a storage device and we provide the equipment and instructions.

What makes up the library’s Memory Lab? Equipment and information for conversion of analog formats to digital. The Lab can currently support the following formats:  VHS, cassette tapes, 8mm film, Super 8 film, vinyl records, photographs, negatives, and slides.

Community members will need to take a 30-minute training session and will then be able to reserve time in the lab in three hour blocks. The Memory Lab is open Monday - Friday by appointment.
