Converting VHS to Digital

Wondering what to do with all those old home movies on VHS cassette? We'll show you how to convert them into digital files with the library’s nifty little converter. You'll need to bring in your VHS tape(s) and a flash drive of at least 4 GB; drives are available for purchase in the Queset Office. Please keep in mind that the converter works in real-time, so if you have a 45 minute home movie it will take 45 minutes to complete.

Dana is available each Wednesday & Thursday morning at the Queset House to help you better navigate this digital age, and show you how to use the equipment and databases available to you with your library card.

Each session is for one hour, and by appointment only; please register HERE or by calling 508-238-2000, ext. 3.. If you are interested in any of the topics, or want to explore the other One-On-One with an Expert programs available, please sign up for a session HERE.
