Retro Tech: Preserve Your Memories

Retro Tech new logo

Do you have a shoe box of photos in your closet that you would like to preserve? Can we help you digitize that family movie? The Los Gatos Library received a Pacific Library Partnership grant to help you preserve your memories. 

Our various conversion equipment can digitize the following formats:

1. VHS video tapes
2. Audio cassette tapes
3. Super 8 film
4. Slide photos
5. Photos
6. Documents
7. Negatives

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Los Gatos Library can take your items to digitize them in-house, in efforts to keep our patrons safe as we remain closed to the public at this time. We appreciate your understanding as we work to quickly and carefully work on digitizing your materials, however the turn-around time may take longer as we prioritize other library operations first. 

To inquire about how to get your items digitized, please email us at library@losgatosca.gov. A staff member will reach out to you and ask you for your contact information, more details on your items and their specific formats, and how to drop off the items. We will keep you updated on the progress of digitization, and will let you know when your items can be picked up. The files will either be sent electronically, or you may drop off an external drive to store the files.
