Need to convert your old VHS tapes to DVD? You can borrow one of the Library's three DVD/VCR recorders so you can start transferring your VHS tapes on your own. Each recorder comes in a case with all the components you need.

Visit the Circulation Desk to Check Out a Recorder

DVD/VCR recorders go out for 21 days and may be renewed if no one is waiting. You must library card in good standing. The overdue fine is $0.10/day.

Please turn the case and all its components to the check out desk in the lobby.

The kit includes:

  • 1 Magnavox or Funai brand DVD recorder/VCR (both are identical)
  • 1 remote control
  • 1 HDMI cable
  • 1 RCA composite cable
  • 1 owner's manual
  • 1 quick start guide
  • 1 IBEX carrying case

IMPORTANT NOTE: Only DVD-R or DVD-RW discs work with this unit. Discs can be purchased at most convenience and electronics stores.

Take Home the DVD/VCR Recorder and Transfer Your Tapes 

There is no VHS to DVD transfer service or station at the Library, but the kit you check out includes a quick start guide that shows you how to transfer your own tapes. View our step-by-step instructional video here:
