Increasingly, the materials that make up people's lives are becoming more digital, but not everyone has the equipment or knowledge to properly take care of them. Many analog formats, such as VHS, degrade over time and need to be digitized before the recordings are lost. The San Leandro Public Library provides the following services to help individuals on their personal archiving and digital preservation journey.

Interested in volunteering for the DIY Memory Lab? 
Become a part of the DIY Memory Lab by being available to Memory Lab users for questions and troubleshooting. Volunteers must enjoy working with the public and be comfortable learning new technology.

This DIY Memory Lab was supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
