Thanks to the Friends of the Peter White Public Library, PWPL is excited to announce a new community resource. Digitization equipment was purchased with the goal of helping people digitize personal and community memory. The hardware and software has been installed in the north balcony of the library. It features equipment to digitize photographs, oversize photographs and documents, slides, negatives, and certain video formats.
