Through a generous grant from the Henry County Community Foundation, the library has purchased a ScanEZ Station. This station features two scanners and an easy to use touchscreen for high speed copying of documents, photos and books.
The sheetfed scanner can scan both sides of a document in a single pass, which is perfect for copying IDs. Documents or photos can be placed anywhere on the 11” x 17” flatbed, at any angle and the ScanEZ Station will straighten them. The flatbed scanner also has a book-edge for scanning pages out of books.
Documents and pictures can be printed, scanned to Email, scanned to Cloud-based storage like Google Drive and OneDrive and even sent to a Smartphone using a QR code. Color photographs or old documents that have faded over time can be restored by using the Vivid-Pix software. There is also a translation service that can scan documents from one language to another.
Join the library staff as they demonstrate the many uses of this scanning station on Wednesday, September 8th from 3-4pm near the Main Circulation desk, or stop by any time to try it for yourself.
