Friends of Library offers conversion of photos, other media to digital on Saturday

Now you can get a handle on those piles of old photos you've been meaning to organize.
The Friends of the Plainfield Public Library (FOPPL) is offering a convenient opportunity to convert those old photos, slides, VHS tapes or 8- or 16mm home movies to digital format. And help the library, too.

Representatives of Digital Memory Media, a division of Innovative Document Imaging (see their website
here), will be on hand at the Library's Anne Louise Davis Meeting Room Saturday from Noon to 3:00 PM to help evaluate your stuff and advise on conversion to DVDs.

You know those drawers full of old photos you keep promising yourself to sort? And the almost forgotten home movies from when the kids were little? How about the slides or VHS tapes from those anniversaries or celebrations of yesteryear?

All can now be converted to digital format and recorded on DVDs which you can then view or print from your computer, share by email or post to Facebook for the grandkids to see.

And the DVDs can be copied and distributed (hmmmm...stocking stuffers?) to friends and family.

All this and you can help a worthy cause -- the Plainfield Public Library. Twenty percent of the revenue generated at this FOPPL event will benefit the Library.

And as we move toward the New Year and the anticipated further attack by Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs on funding for the Library, the Friends are to be commended for providing an opportunity to help yourself and the Library at an important time.

Looking forward to seeing you there. Don't forget to bring along your stuff!

Unbelievable that this mayor wants to cut the library funding, and probably could care less if it were around.

Hope at least this, along with Muhlenburg, will bring Plainfielders together.
