Some Special Features at NMPL!
New LDS - Library Document Station
This is the newest technology that we have just implemented for our patrons. The station consists of a flatbed scanner and a touch screen monitor. At this station you can scan, save and send documents and photos. Just place your item on the scanner (no need to straighten it, the scanner does that automatically!), select the function you wish to perform, scan the item and then you may:
The station is located right behind the Reference Desk and the Reference Staff is always pleased to assist you if you have any questions.
All three department supervisors here at NMPL are Connecticut Notary Public. No appointment is necessary. Just walk in and ask at the Reference Desk for this service and one of the supervisors on duty will assist you. You must have a photo ID and the fee is $5.00 per document.
We offer, for a nominal fee of 50 cents per disc, a service to clean your dirty and scratched CDs and DVDs. Due to the generosity of the FRIENDS of the Library, we have a new industrial style VenMill Disc Repair machine in our Technical Services Department. This machine is state-of-the-art. Just bring in your discs, stop at the circulation desk and fill out a simple form and pay for the number of discs you have. One of our Technical Services staff will clean them for you while you wait.
