The library’s Conversion Room is a place where high school and adult members can convert VHS tapes to DVD, and vinyl records, cassette tapes, slides, and negative film to digital files! The Conversion Room is located on the 2nd floor, is available by appointment only, and can be reserved by calling Joe Halter at 630-423-6664.
NEW! The library has adapted some of the capabilities of our Conversion Room and created Conversion Cases to allow members to check out the supplies they need for conversion tasks. Currently available Conversion Cases include equipment to convert
- 8mm Video to Digital or DVD
- VHSC Video to Digital or DVD
- Print Material, Slides, or Negatives to Digital
Please contact Joe Halter at 630-423-6664 to arrange to borrow a Conversion Case! At your pre-arranged reservation or pick-up time, please go to the 2nd Floor Information Desk and ask for Joe Halter or call 630-423-6664.
