Happy National Wedding Month! Did you know you can celebrate your wedding at the Free Library? Every day, our Parkway Central Library serves as a wondrous place for ambitious minds to explore, and an equally wondrous place to gather or celebrate. We are proud to welcome anyone to rent out Parkway Central to celebrate special occasions—it’s the perfect way to #LovetheLibrary!

Parkway Central’s spaces are uniquely stunning: the Main Lobby showcases unique Beaux-Arts architecture and a sweeping grand staircase; the Skyline Room is a uniquely modern window-lined room with integrated A/V technology; the Terrace's two decks and green roofs showcase an unparalleled view of Logan Circle and the Center City skyline; the 2nd Floor Landing has the classic "library" feel with an overhead skylight and domed ceiling decorated with large plaques representing theology, poetry, justice, and philosophy—and picture perfect views of the bronze statue of Free Library founder Dr. William Pepper.
The Free Library works exclusively with Brulee Catering to custom create each event for our guests, figuring out which space works best and to design the style and substance of your menu.
