While we work to create a safe experience for customers and staff, all Free Library locations will remain closed to the public. Many programs are proceeding virtually, and we are preparing to increase select Library services. Learn more.
This year's Wawa Welcome America is proceeding virtually, but that isn't stopping Free Museum Day from happening! Join the Print and Picture Collection and the Rare Book Department for a look at Philadelphia's history - and its history of celebrations.
This live event will offer our virtual visitors the opportunity to engage with curators and librarians in the Free Library's Special Collections Division to learn about historic prints from the Revolutionary War, the famous 1876 Centennial Exposition here in Philadelphia, and the notorious 1976 Bicentennial.
This free virtual event is presented using Crowdcast, an easy-to-use online platform, and will be simulcast on Facebook. Please register and join us!
