About the Media Creation Room

This public space provides equipment for accessing a variety of multimedia formats. Most of the equipment offers the capability of transferring content from an older format, e.g., VHS or LP, to a CD or DVD. All patrons can use this equipment while the library is open. If you need assistance with the equipment, ask for help at the Circulation Desk 580-774-3730.

The Media Creation Room equipment has been temporarily relocated next to the microfilm digitizer along the west wall.
