The Reynolds Media Center of the Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County rents equipment.
Many people are finding old 8mm or 16mm films, slides and VHS tapes that they no longer can view. Before you pay to have those items transferred to a digital format, you can rent a projector from the Library to view them and be sure they are worth having transferred for $5.00/day. For those VHS tapes, we rent a unit that will record your VHS tapes to a DVD for $25.00/day.
The Reynolds Media Center also has LCD projectors to display computer images or a video signal to a large screen format. They rent for only $45.00/day.
Items can be booked in advance with your Library Card from any Monroe County Public Library for a daily fee. Sundays or days the Central Library is closed do not count when calculating the total rental charge. A 24-Hour notice is required before pick-up and a NYS Driver’s License or ID must be presented when picking up equipment.
Please contact the Reynolds Media Center at 585-428-8360 for more information or to see if we have the type of equipment you’re looking for.
