    Such a fantastic library! They even carry children’s books in a variety of languages! Sometimes even multiple different books in a language.

    Cool experience! This library is nice and grand looking. It's in the Logan Circle area of the city. Parking is tough, but you can likely find a spot in the surrounding streets, just have to circle a bit. I like it's proximity to the more iconic Philly landmarks like the Art Museum. On my last visit, there was an exhibition going on rare books. It was pretty interesting! The exhibition was going on in an upper level, so we had a chance to look at a few different floors before getting to the exhibit - makes for good exploring! The employees are really nice and informative. They're great on giving different tidbits and answer any questions you may have. There's lots of room to sit and get work done. The hours of operation are a bit tight, I wish it was open longer but it does make a good area to hang around in to be productive. Enjoy the exploration!

    Great library! They have regularly scheduled tours of the entire building. Besides being beautiful, there are also facilities for teach new skills like cooking and I the basement there's a museum of sorts with some cool oddities (like Charles Dickens's taxidermied pet raven)
