Help Mobility-Impaired Children and Adults Access PCI Library

The Free Library, the Philadelphia City Institute (PCI), on Rittenhouse Square, is the third busiest branch in Philadelphia. Unfortunately, the mobility-impaired neighbors are shut out from two important parts of the library - the Children's Room and the Community Room, both on the lower level, accessible only by stairs. Friends of PCI and the Free Library Foundation have collaborated to develop a plan to install a lift and ramp so that all children can attend storytimes and read books in the Children's Room and all adults can attend programs in the Community Room. PCI asking our community to contribute to this campaign. Please open your hearts and your wallets and contribute to this effort. Send a check to Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation/PCI Lift, 1901 Vine Street, Suite 111, Philadelphia PA 19103. Click or tap here for more info
