The Nassau County Public Library System is proud to introduce a new memory station at the Hilliard Branch Library! This is a station that houses equipment where you can convert your old photos or films and save them to a USB drive. Once the files are saved on your USB drive, you can even email them to yourself so that you can access them on your phone too! Reservations are required. Just keep in mind that while scanning photos only takes a short time, videos will take the same amount of time as footage exists on the film. This means that if your video is 2 hours long, plan to hang out at the library for 2 hours while your video converts. Don’t worry, though; we have plenty of entertainment for you while you’re here-from: free WiFi to books, a Nintendo Switch, magazines, and more.

Compatible film types include VHS, VHS-C, 8mm, Hi8, Digital 8, Super 8, 35mm, 110 film, and 126 film.

A shoutout goes to the Friends of the Hilliard Library and the Town of Hilliard for sponsoring the new station!

For more information, call (904) 530-6500 option 4, or email libraryinfo@nassaucountyfl.com. We hope to see you soon and help make your favorite family memories easier to access.
