Do you have film negatives or slides lingering in boxes that you aren’t sure what to do with? Our Library of Things offerings expanded in the past month to include a Kodak Slide N Scan Digital Film Scanner to turn your negatives and slides into digital images with the click of a button. Scan color and B&W negatives (135, 110, 126) and 50 mm slides (135, 110, 126) to digitally preserve your precious mementos, and keep them vivid for years to come. The scanner can hook up directly to your computer (or one of ours) or you can insert an SD card to save your pictures. We’ve also added more puzzles to our collection, and these cold days are perfect time to enjoy a cozy evening with a fresh puzzle.
For the kids, we have updated our collection of Wonderbooks to include new titles and sing-alongs! After singing along with the music track, kids can switch to the read-along mode and hear the narrated version of the book. There are also a new batch Launchpad tablets ready to hit the shelves. Launchpads are loaded with learning apps, videos, games, and more for interactive learning and play on a wide variety of topics. Pair Wonderbooks and Launchpads with headphones for long car trips or at home use.
