I guess we can't really handle this ourselves.  
The old scanner I had would scan slides, but the new machine I 
bought last summer doesn't.  It has been a great disappointment.
When my ancient Canon copier died, I thought the elegant-looking Brother
machine which was a combined printer, copier, fax and scanner -
telephone too, would be just the answer and free up a lot of space
by getting rid of my old HP scanner.  Of course having much more
desk space just means I have more room for piles of stuff, and the
printer-copier-scanner doesn't really work very well.  Chet has 
bought himself another copier since he doesn't like the way this 
one works.  I guess I'd better look for a good camera shop - the one
near us, and several others in the area have gone out of business.
Thanks for the advice.

My scanner also scans slides.  If yours doesn't, you may be able to 
the add-on separately.

The slides should be cleaned very carefully if they have deteriorated.  A 
good anti-static film cleaner should be used.  You do not want to be 
scanning dust specks along with the slides.  And some solvents can be very 
hard on the emulsion.

You may want to get this job professionally done.
