We also do not charge for scanning.  More and more companies are requiring
scans rather than fax.  Since it involves no supplies, it is free to our
public.  My staff and I use it all the time for sending items places.  My
fax eats up toner like crazy.  I am glad to let patrons use the scanner
instead.

I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about
the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be
tested by how well we support our libraries. ~Carl Sagan, Cosmos
