Become family detectives — look for mystery clues at the library

Bring a VHS tape from your family collection to the library. As a family, sit back, relax, and watch the tape while it gets converted to a DVD.

It's SO important to get those VHS family movies digitized before either the tape disintegrates or the VCR machines are no longer available.

Later, we can help you "rip" the movie from the DVD, converting it to an actual movie file that can be easily preserved for better long term storage.

Get photo of Interview Room

Bring a parent or grandparent and interview them in our interview room. Ask lots of fun questions about their life events. We will record the video onto a DVD. We can then help you edit the audio portion into smaller audio story segments that can be uploaded to FamilySearch.

Come explore our two 55" interactive touchscreen TVs! The TVs will utilize the stories, photos, and facts from your FamilySearch account and display those items in a very visual way. There are three modules: 1) About Me, 2) ???, 3) ???

Become family history detectives using clues from documents, online database searches, and other items to create a "story" about a person from years ago. This is a fun activity to help you better understand the available resources and how to glean information from them.

to "rip" means to pull the movie file from the DVD and convert it into a file format that can easily be played on computers or in browsers.
