February 2018 - In This Issue:
Update from your Library Director...
Ever wonder why we no longer have a FAX machine? Two reasons:

1. To send a fax we charged you $1 per page. With our new Xerox machine, we can offer you FREE scanning and emailing. If you have an email address, you can scan the document you need to FAX, enter the email address and the machine will do the rest. It's FREE and you can email yourself a copy as well to verify receipt of the document. 

2. Emailing your document removes the chance that you (or we) will enter the wrong phone number and send your personal information to wrong person.

If you need help with the process of scanning and emailing, just ask one of our PC Help Desk staff to show you how it's done.
