Bosler Memorial Library is now an official fingerprinting center for IDEMIA. IDEMIA is the PA State contractor for fingerprinting services through their IdentoGO, identity services.
Supporting the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, IdentoGO Centers are operated by IDEMIA (transitioning from MorphoTrust), the global leader in trusted identities. Today, the company partners with many federal, state and local government agencies as well as businesses covering a variety of industries that count on us for the secure capture and transmission of applicants’ fingerprints. We proudly serve millions of customers each year in our nationwide network of locations.
IdentoGO Centers provide convenient, professional environments for live scan (electronic) fingerprinting services, which are delivered by trained Enrollment Agents. IdentoGO is the exclusive live scan fingerprinting provider for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and is a certified FBI Channeling Agent.
Library staff, using IdentoGO equipment, capture applicant’s fingerprints and submit them to IdentoGO. They in turn submit them to the Pennsylvania State Police who process them through the state’s Automated Fingerprint Identifying System (AFIS) and then pass them on to the FBI. The results of which are returned to the originating agency, employer or organization.
PLEASE NOTE: Appointments are not required, but pre-registration is required. Once registered, applicants may walk-in during a location’s posted hours of operation, but scheduling an appointment may lead to lesser/no wait times. Walk-in visits will not be able to be accommodated.
To schedule an appointment, which must be done through IdentoGO not the library, you must visit the IdentoGO website.
Please note that there are multiple web addresses for the website. This can be somewhat confusing. Here are a couple of the more common:
www.identogo.com – This is the main site and from this page you can search for locations by zip code. You can also search services by State. From here you can get to a map of locations and also to the page to register for an appointment.
www.identogo.com/locations/pennsylvania - This will take you to the page where you can select enrollment services including passport photos and fingerprinting and then select one to make an appointment.
https://uenroll.identogo.com – This will take you directly to the page for setting an appointment to be fingerprinted.
