DeKALB – The constant demand for fax services and the evolution of technology needs have prompted the DeKalb Public Library to add a new feature to its menu of regular services. Patrons and guests can now fax, send and scan documents to traditional destinations like email or a flash drive or to a guest’s Sky Drive, Google Drive or smartphone. There is a minimal fee of 5 cents a page to scan/send documents and $1 a page to fax documents. Staff members are ready to answer questions and to show guests how to use these new services.
Besides lending books, video games, DVDs, music, e-books, e-readers, and magazines, the library offers free notary, registrar and inter-library loan services, copy machines and printers, free Wi-Fi and internet stations, CD cleaning services, online databases and much more. The library hosts the nonprofit Philanthropy Center, the Illinois Self-Help Legal Aid center and the Brian Slavenas Center for Cross Cultural Understanding. For more information, visit www.dkpl.org. The DeKalb Public Library is located at 309 Oak St. in DeKalb and is open seven days a week.
