8mm/Super 8 Digital Converter Has Arrived!

Christmas came early to Freeman Library!  We recently received our 8mm/Super 8 film converter, which will be installed in the Jocelyn H. Lee Digital Media Lab early next year. This device allows the conversion of 8mm/Super 8 film into digital form for the purposes of preservation. We are very happy to add this to the services in the DML and look forward to you making free use of it.

If you haven't already, register for an upcoming Digital Media Lab orientation session by calling or visiting the library today and start using this fun, valuable, and free resource in the new year!

3-D Printing Demo tonight!

Kindle eReaders are now available for check out!  These ereaders will circulate for two-weeks, just like our other materials.  Is one unavailable at your branch?  You can put a hold on it just like a book and have one sent from another branch.  With it, you can download free ebooks from Amazon.

Desktop CNC Orientation in November

Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Freeman, the Innovation Lab was able to purchase a Nomad 883 desktop CNC from Carbide 3D this summer.  This desktop CNC is a 3D 'carving' tool (essentially a small end-mill) that patrons will be able to use to create objects from wood, plastics and some metals.  Orientation sessions on the use of this tool will be scheduled in the month of November.  After orientation, patrons will be able to make a reservation on the machine in much the same way as the 3D printers or laser cutter/engraver.  Stay tuned for a listing of select dates for these orientation sessions, which will soon be posted on our Events Calendar.  Thanks again to the Friends of Freeman for their support of the Jocelyn H. Lee Innovation Lab!
