Philadelphia Center for the Book is proud to announce Something Old, Something New: Philadelphia Center for the Book Member’s Exhibition. Curated by the Philadelphia Center for the Book Board, members were invited to submit two book works from different years. The pieces, displayed together, demonstrate experimentation, developed skill, and sustained themes, giving the viewer insight to the development of the artist. It is evident that while some things change, others often remain the same.

"Just as generations before us have done, it’s important that we also do our part." Great opinion piece from Evelina Bodon and Felicia Harris about getting involved within our communities.

    Most neighborhood volunteers are seniors. The time is now for millennials to get involved | Opinion
    These public spaces are gems and can be part of what makes living in a neighborhood so attractive; and they have only survived for so long because of the commitment of those few neighbors, many seniors, who are dedicated volunteers, advocates and members of friends of groups or recreation advisory councils.
