The Lackawanna Valley Digital Archives was developed by the Scranton Public Library thanks to a generous grant from the Willary Foundation. Its primary mission is to make the history of the Lackawanna Valley and surrounding areas accessible to anyone with a computer and Internet connection.

The LVDA is divided into collections based on time periods or themes and contains high quality images of books, photographs, printings, letters, maps, videos, and other artifacts. Items have been collected from a number of organizations and individuals and can be viewed with great detail and clarity. New collections will debut on a regular basis.
