Mission Statement

The Free Library of Philadelphia will provide to all segments of Philadelphia a comprehensive collection of recorded knowledge, ideas, artistic expression, and information in a variety of media; to assure ease of access to these materials; and to stimulate the awareness and use of these resources. 

Volunteering at the Free Library of Philadelphia is a rewarding and fun experience. We have many opportunities at Parkway Central Library and all of our neighborhood library locations throughout the city, including the Library for the Blind and the Physically Handicapped. Our volunteers help us with special events; assist Philadelphia’s New Americans gain familiarity with a new language by acting as a English Language Facilitator; help departments maintain their collections; provide senior citizens with one-on-one with computer assistance; and help to shelve both new and returned material.
