Visit Philadelphia Little Free(dom) Library
Visit Philadelphia® — in partnership with Little Free Library and the Free Library of Philadelphia — has launched the Little Free(dom) Library initiative, encouraging visitors and residents to explore Black history and engage with Black narratives
during Black History Month. Some 1,500 banned books are available at 13 visitor and neighborhood hubs across the city.
According to Penn America, more than 30 states have banned or deemed inappropriate certain books – both fiction and non-fiction – by Black authors. This effort demonstrates Philadelphia’s commitment, as the birthplace of the nation, to making these stories accessible and available to both visitors and residents.
Philadelphia Visitor Center Corporation is hosting a Little Freedom Library site at the Independence Visitor Center. Stop by and borrow a banned book from a black author!
