“Warren Public Library Reference Department has added a welcome piece of equipment thanks to the generosity of several community organizations and individual families over the course of several years of targeted fundraising,” WPL Reference Librarian Beverly Leonhardt said. “Special thanks to Zonta of Warren, The American Legion Warren Post 135 of Warren, Warren Moose Lodge 109, the Ayers Family and Jim Beckley for making this possible.”

The new equipment will help improve print quality and eliminate an extra step in the saving process.
“The new ScanPro 3000i Digital Microreader loads film easily and provides optical as well as digital zoom for the best quality of imaging,” Leonhardt said. “It interfaces with the large monitor of the SCANPA digitization program setup for excellent viewing. Now patrons and staff have the ability to save scans and email or share digitally without the added step of printing and scanning to digitize. Printing utilizes existing high-quality library printers for higher quality results.
“We are very excited for the time when we can reopen access to our equipment such as this for patron use,” Leonhardt added. “Until that is possible, please contact [email protected], reach out through the library social media, or call for the Reference department to fill your informational and research needs.”
