Anyone looking to digitize or preserve some of their photos, documents, or other personal items will want to take note of a couple dates coming up in Madison.  

As part of the 50th anniversary of the Karl Mundt Library on the DSU campus in Madison, they are hosting a “Scan Day” this Thursday, February 20th.

The purpose of the event is to allow Dakota State University people as well as people from the Madison community to learn how to digitize and preserve personal items, such as photographs, documents, recipe cards, hand-written letters, or other materials that the person would like to preserve.

Anyone interested needs to make a reservation with the library for a 30-minute time slot with Ellen Hoff by emailing her at [email protected] or calling the library at 256-5203. In those 30 minutes, most people can easily scan up to 8 documents.

The Madison Public Library is planning a similar event next week, on Tuesday, February 25th. Reservations for Scan Day at the Madison Public Library can be made by calling the library.
