New DIY Digitization Service Comes to Reston Regional Library

A new “memory depot” is available at Reston Regional Library and five other libraries in the county.

The do-it-yourself station allows library patrons to digitize materials.

The following formats are accepted:

  • Photographic prints, negatives and slides
  • Scrapbooks and other documents
  • VHS and VHS-C video cassettes
  • Audio cassettes
  • 3.5″ Floppy disks

The service, which started at the City of Fairfax Regional Library, is also available at  the Centreville Regional LibraryGeorge Mason Regional LibraryPohick Regional Library, and Sherwood Regional Library.

Only Centreville Regional Library allows users to digitize vinyl albums. Patrons must bring the materials and an external hard drive or USB.

Before signing up for a session, residents should consider taking a 30-minute orientation. Reston’s branch does not require registration for the orientation, which is held on Wednesdays. More information is available online.
