The New Film/Fiche Scanner is Here and Ready to Use at Mt. Clemens Public Library's Genealogy & Local History Room

Mt. Clemens Public Library's
New Digital Film/Fiche Scanner
The digital film/fiche scanner was installed yesterday, the library staff and genealogy volunteers received some training and guidance on using the new equipment, and after a few more tweaks today, the new digital film/fiche scanner is ready for public use in the Genealogy and Local History Room of the Mount Clemens Public Library.

Patrons can print or scan to digital file using this scanner.  To save to a digital file, bring in your USB Flash Drive. If you forget yours, you can buy a 4 GB drive from the information desk for $5.25.
If you are not sure how to use the new equipment, PLEASE ASK a staff member or volunteer to show you. There is also a help video and PDF guide on scanner's computer.

Thank you to all that donated and made it possible to purchase this wonderful piece of technology. We are still looking to purchase one more and continue to request donations. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation, you can send your donation (checks made payable to the library) to the Mount Clemens Public Library, 150 Cass Avenue, Mount Clemens, MI 48043.

Remember, the one remaining traditional film/fiche printer has been fixed using the parts of the older machine and is still available for use.

See you soon at the Mt Clemens Public Library!
