Short answer: Yes! The Library's photocopiers are capable of scanning documents. You need to save your file to a USB device ("flash drive," "jump drive," "usb drive"). Hopefully the following instructions will help demonstrate:

Plug in the USB device.1. Insert a USB drive into the copier. Some of the copiers look different than others, but many of them have the USB port in the back on the side like this one (at right).

2. Choose "SCAN" from the gray buttons in the middle of the copier panel (MENU, COPY, SCAN, PRINT).
