The Bartlesville Public Library would like to warmly thank the Bartlesville Rotary Club 2476 for their sponsorship of $350 to assist in the creation of a Digital Conversion Center. This equipment allows users to convert older personal media to new technology. For example, VHS tapes or camcorder tapes can be converted to DVD and cassette tapes and even vinyl records can be converted to CD or flashdrive.
The Digital Conversion Center is located in the Local & Family History room of the Library. This center is a self-service center and can be reserved in two-hour blocks. Library staff will provide basic instruction and the patron performs the conversions. The equipment does conversions in real time, so if you are converting a two-hour tape from one media to another it will take two hours to perform the conversion. Patrons using the technology should bring a CD, flashdrive, or DVD to load their converted files onto.
Users are also required to sign a release indemnifying the library should the media become damaged in the conversion process and agreeing to follow copyright laws. The center is available for library patron use at no charge during library hours. Call 918-338-4167 to make a reservation for the center; we love that we can help you preserve your memories!

Lloyd Coke, who has spent almost 40 years metal detecting, will talk on the subject Wednesday, March 27 from 7 pm to 8 pm in the Library’s Meeting Room A. Coke belongs to two local metal detecting clubs and has won six times in national treasure hunts. His finds, which have been frequently showcased in displays at the Library, include numerous coins, rings, watches, jewelry, keys and toys, to name a few of the objects he has found.
Coke will discuss strategies on how to best use a metal detector, including the Library’s new Garrett ACE 200 Metal Detector from the Library’s Things Collection. He will cover what you can find with the metal detector, as well as the “10 commandments of metal detecting,” which includes information about the state and federal regulations that protect sites against unauthorized relic digging.
This program is free and open to the public. For more information, please call the Reference desk at 918-338-4169.
