How would I receive a fax at the library

Hi there. Manitou Springs Library is the only location receiving incoming faxes. It costs $.10 per page. Their fax number is (719) 685-9142.

Does the everyday free copies also covers fax as well

Are you able to digitize photos, or just pages?

Are there any scanners that can convert photo negatives to digital files?


Both Library 21c and East have converters. The machines are generally available whenever the library is open and all you will need is an SD memory card. If you have any questions, please call the Makerspace at 719-884-9800 x6364.

Thank you.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your question. PPLD offers VHS converters at East Library and Library 21c, near the makerspaces. These converters are available during our standard operating hours, and can copy a VHS tape over to a DVD-R or DVD+R disc, but not to a digital format. Please note, you must supply your own recordable discs. Also, a VHS tape can only be copied if the copyright/overwriting protection tab is intact, and not removed.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions, and thanks for contacting us!

Does the library offer notary services?

So I was wondering at the sand creek library they give out free sheets of paper to print but I was wanting to know how many do you guys give out.

Hi Diane,
Would you mind giving a little further explanation? We have fax cover sheets that we have available for patrons to use as well as Colorado and Federal 1040 tax forms.
Thank you,
Jake Rundle

Can you scan photographic film? If so, what sizes can be scanned?


The photographic film scanners at Library 21c and East can scan 35mm film, negatives, and slides. The will scan onto an SD card in a jpeg format.

Do you have a Spine binder punch to bind multiple pages of 8 x11 copies?


Unfortunately, we do not have those at any of our branches.
