    Inside the Society Hill library where 'hidden' Philadelphia lives in 19th-century grandeur
    So, how did it survive? Conn says it's because he doesn't see the Athenaeum as in competition with public libraries. He's a tremendous supporter of public libraries and sees them as "indispensable institutions for American democracy." In fact, today, the Athenaeum is open and free to the public for all exhibits.

On March 7, 1814, "Poulson's American Daily Advertiser" published an article about the Athenaeum, stating that it was to be opened on that day, indicating that "The rooms of the Athenaeum, are in the second story of A. Finley's Book Store, S.E. corner of Chestnut and Fourth street." Although we are no longer at that location, we regret that our current building will not be open to mark the occasion, on account of the inclement weather. We hope to reopen on Thursday, March, 8, 2018.

For those of you who can't wait for the Super Bowl to start, we offer this favorite from our collection: Poe's foot-ball: how to play the most popular amateur game ; containing the latest American Inter-collegiate Association and Rugby rules. It was published in New York in 1891. An interesting nugget from p. 16: Rule 17. -- No one wearing projecting nails or iron plates on his shoes, or any metal substance upon his person, shall be allowed to play in a match. No sticky or greasy substance shall be used on the person of players. Makes you wonder what those early games were like. #flyeaglesfly #superbowlLII
