Our patrons have really been enjoying the use of our new DIGITAL MICROFILM READER!
Thanks to a new state-of-the-art digital microfilm reader system, our patrons can access the library’s microfilmed collection of area newspapers, with the latest technology available. The new system replaced a 13 year-old system that quit working shortly before it was replaced.
The ST ViewScan III Digital Reader/Printer/Viewer/Scanner is equipped with ability to capture digital images from microfilm, microfiche and 16mm or 35mm film.
The device is very user-friendly, with an abundance of options for image adjustments and editing. Users may save to a USB, Google Drive, Dropbox, email directly from the device, or directly to their Family Search account.
The library staff is available to assist patrons with the new microfilm reader anytime during operating hours.
This project was made possible through a grant from the Merrick Foundation, Inc, along with funds from the City of Central City and the Library’s endowment fund.
BRAND NEW on our web page is a link to our NEW DIGITAL ARCHIVES WEBSITE!!???
The newspapers in the database are fully searchable by keyword and date (making it easy to quickly explore historical content). Use the archives to gain a local perspective on historical news, to research your family history, or to simply read about a person or event of interest. Additional pages will be added as the project progresses.

The first grant is for our Launch Pad Mobile Makerspace! We’ll be creating a mobile space within the library, where people can gather to create, invent, and learn! The makerspace will include fun activities that will focus on: STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).
The second grant is for an Edgerton Explorit Center Science Program ~ “Bubbles” for kids during 2017 Summer Reading. It will also be used to purchase jump ropes and hula hoops for fun fitnesss/health-related events.
We’re excited about the projects and can’t wait to share them with you!
