The 2018 Free Library of Philadelphia Family Event

The Free Library of Philadelphia Is Celebrating the Benjamin Franklin Parkway Centennial ... Family Style!

Experience the Library as never before as you enjoy art projects, games, storytelling, a scavenger hunt, a kid-friendly dinner buffet, and—of course—plenty of books! All proceeds benefit the critical programs offered in every community across the city by the Free Library of Philadelphia.

While the City of Philadelphia provides for the operation of the Library’s facilities and infrastructure, many critical programs that foster literacy—like the city’s largest no-cost after school program, LEAP, which serves more than 100,000 students annually—are only possible with support from generous individuals and organizations like you. By purchasing a ticket or becoming a Family Event sponsor today, you will help advance literacy, guide learning, and inspire curiosity for Philadelphians of all ages and backgrounds.
