How do I scan documents and photos at the library?

Library printer/copiers

On library photocopiers, you can scan to your USB drive in B&W or color for free.

  1. Place the paper(s) to be scanned in the document feeder (face up), or on the glass (face down).
  2. Plug the USB drive into the port at the front of the copier. The touchscreen will say “External memory device (USB) is connected.”
  3. On the copier touchscreen, tap “Scan to external memory device.”
  4. To scan with default options, tap Black & White Start or Color Start. The screen will say “scanning original,” and then “processing data.” For advanced options on your scan (like adding a filename), tap “Details”, then tap “Yes” to exit Easy Scan mode. Set your options, then tap Start.
  5. If you have additional pages to scan, place the pages and tap Start again.
  6. After scanning your last page, tap "Read-End."
  7. Unplug the USB when the touchscreen message changes from "sending data" to "sending complete.”
  8. Remove your document from the feeder or glass.
