See if a local academic campus has a School of Library and 
Information Studies or an equivalent. If so, approach them (rather 
than the library proper) to see if an eager graduate school student 
can/will take on your conversion project for credit. They may have 
free access to the technology required and may provide free labor 
too, in exchange for your providing a "real world" work experience 
(a practicum or internship type effort is usually a requirement in 
these programs).
