Digital Conversion Stations
Do you have a collection of family VHS tapes or have a stack of photo negatives collecting dust at home? Our digital conversion stations have a variety of tools to help you digitize your analog media, including VHS, VHS-C, audio cassettes, vinyl records, slides, film negatives, Digital8/Hi8 or photographs. You can also convert your digital media to new formats, including burning CDs and DVDs.
We offer digital conversion equipment at the Abbottsfield – Penny McKee, Capilano and Stanley A. Milner Library branches. These workstations can be booked for free and staff will help you get started.
The digital conversion workstations offer a suite of tools to help you digitize analog media. That means you can book a time to bring your audio cassettes, vinyl records and more into one of our three branches and digitize it.

Bring old photographs, film negatives or slides into one of our three locations to convert them into digital file formats. Don't let treasured memories and family adventures be forgotten due to a broken slide projector.
We all have VHS tapes sitting on our shelves. Whether they contain family vacations or your cousin's Christmas concert, we can help digitize them.
Are you a music buff with old cassettes and vinyl records hanging around? We can help get all your tracks into one place.
