Mini Archiving Lab: Drop-In Tutorial

Mini Archiving Lab: Drop-In Tutorial

Study Room A
Tuesday, Sep 19, 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Meadowridge Library will be hosting the Mini Archiving Lab in August and September 2023. The Mini Archiving Lab is a collection of portable equipment that can be used to digitize analog materials, such as home VHS movies, audio cassettes, photographs, negatives and more. Stop by Meadowridge during select dates for a tutorial on how to use the library's Mini Archiving Lab. Tutorial duration is approximately 20-30 minutes. If you arrive while a tutorial is in progress, please be patient as we can return to earlier material as we finish. We recommend arriving right at the half hour mark (1:00, 1:30, 2:00, etc).

Following the tutorial, you will be able to make an appointment during library hours to use the equipment (up to 2 hours per day) for your personal archiving project. Patrons must bring some form of external storage—a portable hard drive, or a thumb drive—on which digital files can be stored.

The Mini Archiving Lab supports the following formats: VHS tapes, DVDs (not BluRay), audio cassettes, photographs (including negatives and slides), and other paper-based documents.

Call 608-288-6160 for more information.

Open Studio with Artist-in-Residence Maria Schirmer Devitt

Tuesday, Sep 19, 5:30pm to 7:30pm

All are welcome to join Maria and create a space for wishing within the Bubbler Room. Each week, Maria will be in the Bubbler Room on Thursday evenings, hosting sessions to create enchanting art together. We will explore the magic that exists in the natural world, our community, and in ourselves. We will focus on combining words and images using printmaking, collage, and sculpture. We’ll delve into questions such as:

What are we wishing for (something we’ve never had or something we’ve lost or…)? 
What does it take for our wishes to come true?
Who or what grants them?
What kind of collective magic can we summon?
What offerings do we leave in return as we make our wish?
What rituals do we create around making wishes? 

All ages and abilities are welcome! Drop in, no registration required. 

When we wish, we wish for something just out of our reach of what seems possible. What would it take to bring it to make them come true?
