Lackawanna County Office of Education and Cultural Affairs

The Scranton Cultural Center and the Everhart Museum.

This collaboration sets the stage for all residents of Lackawanna County to learn, to grow, and to be entertained at three of the area’s most valuable institutions. Your Lackawanna County Library Card gives you free admission to top-notch lectures by nationally-known writers, discounts to Scranton Cultural Center shows, and access to special events at the Everhart Museum.

Special Library Collections

The Lackawanna County Library System maintains an ongoing partnership with the Everhart Museum, the Lackawanna Historical Society, the Commonwealth Medical College Library, and the Lackawanna County Law Library to provide access to their special library collections. The library collections of these four institutions are searchable in the Lackawanna County Library System Catalog.

LCLS patrons with a valid library card may borrow material from the Commonwealth Medical College Library by placing holds in the catalog with pickup at any LCLS library, or by visiting the Commonwealth Medical College Library.

LCLS patrons with a valid library card have access to the libraries of the Lackawanna Historical Society, the Everhart Museum, and the Lackawanna County Law Library without paying an additional membership fee. Access is on a reference-only basis (materials do not circulate) during regularly-scheduled hours.
