Library Introduces Public Scanning Service

Scranton Public Library offers scanning services to the public. Patrons needing scanning services can visit the Reference Department on the 2nd floor during regular business hours and speak with any member of the department staff.  Operation is limited to library staff.

In this circumstance they will not be charged for the scan.
 
The library staff member will scan patron’s documents to a flash drive that he or she has supplied or the patron can purchase one at the Reference Desk. The cost is ten dollars ($10).

The Reference Department will not save a copy of the scan. It will be deleted immediately upon the completion of the scan job.

The Scranton Public Library is not responsible for lost or damaged USB drives that will be used for saving the scanned document.
