FHCs Seem to be Abandoned

Classification: Query
I have visited several Family History Centers in the past couple years. In every case, the equipment for viewing microfilm is quite old and the ways to get copies of images is very limited. Printing viewers, when present, are on the verge of breakdown and there don't seem to be any modern digital readers that allow directing an image to a computer to print the image or store it as a jpeg to a USB thumbdrive. It's like the Church is abandoning these remote centers.

Last week I offered to contribute a third of the cost toward a digital reader at our local branch and was met with a dismissive "I don't think we're interested in that" with no explanation. I'm going to try a slightly larger center about an hour away but I really expect the same attitude.

Are others seeing this same phenomena?
