Memory Depot

Memory Depot

The Memory Depot is a do it yourself (DIY) station which enables you to digitize materials. The library's Memory Depots are currently located at the Centreville Regional Library, City of Fairfax Regional Library, George Mason Regional Library, Pohick Regional Library and Sherwood Regional Library. Reston Regional Library's Memory Depot will open in mid-December.

Currently, you can digitize the following formats:

  • Photographic prints, negatives and slides
  • Scrapbooks and other documents
  • VHS and VHS-C video cassettes
  • Audio cassettes
  • Vinyl albums (only at Centreville Regional Library)
  • 3.5" Floppy disks

You will need to bring with you the materials you want to digitize, an external hard drive or a USB with sufficient capacity for your materials to be saved digitally!

Please continue to Getting Started! to find out more about orientations and registering for sessions at a Memory Depot station!
