Scanning Services and Prices

Price for Scanning

  • $2.00 per PDF file

You must provide a USB drive to save the scanned files or you may purchase a USB drive from the Library for $10.00. Files will be given a generic name (e.g. KCLLEFILINGSCAN001.pdf) and will need to be renamed before you use them. You can use the Library's public access computers to E-File documents through the King County Superior Court. You can also create documents in MS Word on the Library's computers and save them as a PDF file using the free CutePDF Writer printer that is installed on the computers.

Without access to information, there is no justice.
