Scanners in the Library

We have new microfilm readers in Kalispell and Whitefish for those that didn't know. They are hooked to a computer and do a very good job of "crisping" the image of old microfilm. We have 22" widescreen monitors attached that make it easier to read the vertical layout of a newspaper page.

We also have regular scanner computers in Columbia Falls, Kalispell and Whitefish that you can use to scan photos and old slides into a digital image. Documents can be scanned into .pdf documents or an editable Word document. The fun never stops in the digital world of the Flathead County Libraries!

The fun never stops at Flathead County Libraries, period. Great job on the scanners! I lost my breath for a second when I read about the reference collection, but I've recovered knowing there is more space for customers and staff. And thanks for the book and film recommendations. A blog a day should keep no one away...take care - M2
