What we can do for you at your local library!

The Scranton Public Library has a full staffed Reference Department at the main branch on Vine and Washington in Scranton, Pa.  We have a large reference collection and can find articles, books, government information, and local history/genealogy research.  If you have a question fill out the form below and we will get back to you ASAP.

Most of your local libraries have small reference collections to help answer your question.  The Scranton Public Library has a bigger collection if you need more in-depth information.
