Step 2: You will receive a permission form and invoice that includes any relevant fees and the Library's Conditions for Use.

Signing and returning this form indicates that you agree to follow the Enoch Pratt Free Library’s Conditions for Use.

  • Payment of all applicable fees must be received before orders are processed.
  • Checks and money orders are to be made out to Enoch Pratt Free Library.

Step 3: Turnaround time for original scanning or digital photography is 2-4 weeks from receipt of prepayment, for orders of existing images it is 1-2 weeks.

  • Delivery will be made by email or ftp transfer at no additional cost. CD/DVDs sent through regular mail will require an additional fee.
