What is Retro Technology Lab?

In this free program led by library staff, patrons will learn how to digitize their memories. Including slides, VHS, 8-millimeter files, and photographs. This program was inspired by late fire tragedies in California, and we hope that our patrons will take full advantage of this opportunity to eliminate the loss of memories.

How should I prepare?

Prioritize which memories you’d like to preserve. Come prepared with your items and a USB storage device or standard-sized SD card with sufficient space to save your digitizations, or an account with an online storage service (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.). The library will have limited USB storage devices available.

This service is offered in the activity room of the Red Bluff Library. You can book your appointment by calling 530-527-0604 or sending an email retrotech@tehamacountylibrary.org
