Family Lineage Image Preservation (FLIP) Digital Services

Family Lineage Image Preservation (FLIP) Digital Services provides scanning and transferring services for the conversion of your family images, in both still and moving formats. The service is available to Poughkeepsie Public Library District library cardholders who are 18 years of age or older and have no outstanding fines, fees, or overdue materials. There is a $4.00 materials fee to use the service.

  2. Request an appointment to meet with library staff to receive your materials by emailing makerservices@poklib.org and specify if you prefer a daytime, evening, or weekend appointment, and we will respond to set-up a date and time.
  3. Bring the completed Tracking Form, and the limit or size stated for pictures, home videos, slides and film negatives (cut within the limit size and protected) to your appointment time at the Reference Desk on the Main Floor. Allow 10-15 minutes to meet with staff to receive your materials.
  4. When your materials have been digitized, and on a new USB drive, you will be contacted by email to set up an appointment to meet with a staff member to return and sign over your materials back to you, and pay the $4.00 fee for the cost of the new USB drive.
