Have you ever found yourself in the position of needing to scan a document but no access to a scanner? The Delaware County District Library can help!
At the Delaware Branch, we have provided a scanner with the ability to scan nearly any document to transfer to a thumb drive to print, email, upload, or simply save it. There is absolutely no cost to use the scanner, and it is very simply to operate. If, however, you have any questions, Library staff are always available to help you.
Why would you need to scan something? If you have a letter or other important piece of paper that you’d like to share with family, friends, or colleagues, you can quickly scan it to be emailed to them. Or if you’d like to preserve a document that is fragile or irreplaceable, scanning it allows you to convert it to digital format and download it to a thumb drive for safe -keeping. For example, if your kindergartner wrote his name for the first time, or created his first crayon masterpiece, you can scan it to email to Grandma and Grandpa. Need to keep important insurance papers safe? Scan them to a thumb drive, upload them to your computer and safely file them away. Photographs are easy to scan, share or save, too. The scanner provides both black and white and color options, as will as a variety of formats (pdf, tiff, etc.).
Please stop by often to take advantage of this great free service at the Delaware Library. And, if you need a thumb drive, we have those available for sale at a nominal cost in the computer room.
As the needs of the public evolve and change, your Library strives to provide services and materials to meet new demands and requests. Adding this scanner is one example of meeting those challenges, providing you with technology that is user-friendly and state-of-the-art.
