The Free Library of Philadelphia's Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (LBPH) will soon have a new home.
Beginning Wednesday, February 21, this library will be located at 1500 Spring Garden Street, Suite 230. The new location can be reached via the Broad Street Line (Spring Garden stop) and the 2, 4, 16, and 43 bus lines.

The library will be closed to the public from February 15 to 20 as staff moves materials and readies the new space. If you need to reach library staff during that time, please leave a voicemail or email, and someone will get back to you after February 21.

LBPH, as part of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped at the Library of Congress, serves Pennsylvania residents who have difficulty reading due to a physical impairment, a reading disability, or a vision challenge. It offers a wide variety of services for customers throughout the Commonwealth. Some are available on site, and many are available free through the mail via our partnership with Carnegie Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped in Pittsburgh. In addition, LBPH staff provides outreach statewide about all of these services.
We look forward to welcoming you at our new location!
