Scanning and Emailing or Saving

Documents and photos can be scanned and saved or sent via our photocopier.  You can email scanned files directly to your email address or scan and save them to a USB drive.  If you would like a staff person to assist you, please call ahead of time to make an appointment.  (We also have a scanner available for use on computer #1, but for most purposes the photocopier is easier and quicker).
