Downtown Scranton’s destination for the latest bestsellers and cutting-edge technology
If you walk past the Albright Memorial Library, you might do a double take. It looks like a medieval castle right in the middle of downtown Scranton! As part of the Lackawanna County Library System, this library offers the latest books, magazines, periodicals, audiobooks, CDs, DVDs, and other resources.
History buffs will have a heyday poring over the archive of local documents. Their collection includes newspapers on microfilm that date all the way back to the 1860s. Their online genealogy resources will help you start tracing your family tree.
Be sure to check the events calendar. The technology classes are especially popular, from coding for kids to teen STEM programs. Combine your creativity with your tech skills at the Creation Station, a computer lab with 3D printers and Adobe design software. If you need to brush up on your basic computer skills, the introductory courses will have you surfing the web and mastering Microsoft Office in no time.
