Make investment in our City’s neighborhood libraries a priority
We know that safe, welcoming, high-quality and well-programmed public spaces create neighborhoods and communities that are healthier, better connected, more proud of where they live and more confident in the ability of their government. A city that prioritizes such essential services and facilities for its people is a progressive city that is always moving forward.
With the proposed “Rebuild” investment, the Free Library of Philadelphia will be able to upgrade and transform Philadelphia’s public library facilities, improving the lives of over 1 million Philadelphia residents.
