Devices & Tech
As tools become digital and resources move to online platforms – the Lillooet Area Library Association is committed to providing electronic tools and access to digital learning opportunities.
The library team aims to meet tech needs of the community by providing access, information and training on new technologies.
Available Devices & Tech
See below for a full list – some devices have conditions.
Media Converter Station
Turn your VHS into digital files!
The media converter station is available to use for free for patrons. In order to use this resource, you must book the Community Room for a set of time. One of the branch librarians will unlock the cupboard and give you basic instructions.
Please keep in mind that VHS and DVDs are recorded in ‘real time’ when using the converter station. This means it will take 2 hours to convert a 2 hour video.
Book the Community Room by contacting the front desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-256-7944.
Watch and listen to digital media
The library team is in the process of setting up 5 chromebook devices that patrons can borrow to access free digital media. Digital media includes e-books, audiobooks, movies, TV shows, music and video courses.
Hoopla, Libby, Linkedin Learning, and Google Workspace will be setup on the chromebooks.
