Media Conversion Lab is Here! Do you have VHS or audiocassettes you would like to convert to a digital format? The media cannot have a copyright, but all those old family videos or cassettes can be transferred. We will have the machines and instructions at the library so that you can convert your VHS tapes to DVDs and audiocassettes to CD’s or thumb drives.  The machines will be available from Oct. 30-Dec. 16 during our open hours.
