Malden Public Library was so pleased to be given a gift of a new microfilm reader for our local history room by the Piccolo Family Charitable Foundation. The Scanpro 3000 will enable users to produce digital output in multiple forms including pdf, digital word search, resident internet links, and enhanced digital imaging of degraded text and photos. This equipment can currently be found in the best research libraries and universities.

The donation from the Piccolo Family Charitable Foundation was presented to Library Director Dora St. Martin and Library Board of Trustees President John Tramondozzi by C. Henry Kezer, President of the Foundation and Laura Hodgin, Treasurer. The Mary F. Piccolo Foundation was created for the purpose of supporting educational and scholastic enterprises of Malden, Melrose and surrounding communities. The Library and the Malden community thank the Foundation for their generous support.
