Scanning Books

Both Henderson Library in Statesboro, and Lane Library in Savannah are set up with book scanners.  These are open to the public and available for any library visitors to use.

Both locations use KIC Bookeye scanners.  These let you put a book on a tabletop, and then use a touchscreen to take photos of the book pages.  The touchscreen will provide instructions.

  • Can scan up to 24 pages per minute
  • Can scan material up to 24" x 18"
  • Output formats: PDF, JPEG, PNG, MP3, TIFF & searchable PDF
  • Flat & v-cradle modes
  • Accessible to patrons of all abilities
  • Save scans on a flash drive or send to any email address for easy access


When scanning a long document, we strongly recommend scanning in smaller chunks.  For example, scanning 20 pages, and then saving and starting a new file.  This way, if there are any interruptions, you will only loose a little work.  Both libraries provide computer workstations with Adobe Acrobat Professional which can be used to combine together multiple PDFs, so you can take several shorter chunks and combine them at a nearby computer workstation after you finish scanning.
