Retired Flag Collection

Do you have a United States flag which has become tattered or soiled? If you have a flag in need of retirement, please stop by the Library. Boy Scout Troop 270’s Nick Planeta has built a collection bin for such flags. As his Eagle Scout Project, Nick plans to retire these flags in a respectful, traditional way.

Doxie Flip Scanner–Now Available to Check Out

Got Old Photos? Children’s Artwork? Ticket Stubs? Do you want to preserve them for yourself and future generations? Stop by the library and take home our Doxie Flip Scanner. Gather your old photographs and other memorabilia and scan them with the Doxie Flip. The images are saved to an SD card, which you can then import to your home computer. After installing the Doxie software, you can organize your scans, crop, rotate, adjust the color, stitch multiple scans together, and upload to social media or other apps. This project is supported by a grant from the Coginchaug Valley Education Foundation.
