The library analogy is completely besides the point: Scribd is a file-sharing service and the subscription only gets you an easier download, just like some other file-sharing services give you faster speeds with a subscription. The subscription has nothing to do with the right to read and keep the file, during or after it being active. Whether the download is a legitimate or a pirated PDF (there are plenty of those up on Scribd) is entirely between the uploader and the downloader.
All of that is irrelevant to "can I read the PDF after the subscription is ended".
Only relevant to "should I".

Also "pirate content" is legally an issue for the site that hosts it, even more than the uploader and dowloader. The downloader is least liable in any civil copyright action. But all irrelevant to physically being able to read a downloaded PDF and the remote deletion on a PC is impossible normally.

I agree, your library analogy and all adiacent musings are irrelevant. We've already agreed that the answer to the OP is yes, there's nothing else to discuss.
