As the Free Library of Philadelphia expands our services during the pandemic, the Science & Wellness Department has a limited number of research appointments available each week. By completing this application, you will receive an email to schedule a research session with a librarian.
The collection in the Science & Wellness Department (S&W) covers a diverse group of subjects including medical, health, and parenting materials and works on engineering, the sciences, computers, and technology. S&W also offers materials on cooking, pets, gardening, personal finance, and consumer information. The mechanically minded searching for appropriate "how-to" guides can also find assistance in this department.
