The Free Library is one of the most important and widely used educational and cultural institutions in Greater Philadelphia. Each year, we welcome 6 million visitors to our 54 neighborhood libraries and the Rosenbach and millions more to freelibrary.org. We offer 25,000 engaging and enlightening programs for all ages, circulate more than 7 million items, and preserve hundreds of thousands of rare and unique items in our special collections, from ancient cuneiform tablets to the personal letters of Charles Dickens.
We simply couldn’t do it without you.
Through the generosity of private support, the Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation supports many of the Library’s incredible programs that enhance literacy, guide learning, and inspire curiosity throughout our region.
