Please join Art Matthews in a discussion of his book, Historical Commemoration of the Black in Blue. The book is a collection of photos and articles that commemorate some of the accomplishments of African Americans in law enforcement; primarily in the Philadelphia Police Department. Mr. Matthews has researched the ten-year campaign (from 1871 to 1881) by the African American citizens of the historic 7th Ward, to hire African Americans as police officers. Copies of the book will be available. Thursday, May 17, 2018 6:30 P.M.

    Through Cooking, Immigrants Better Understand English, America
    Food and conversation go together like love and marriage; they are a natural pairing, one that evokes home and comfort. That is exactly why the Free Library of Philadelphia offers cooking classes to immigrants and refugees. They learn American cooking, sure, but they also learn the English language.

Weather is fine for Pokemon Go

Weather is fine for Pokemon Go

    What the Free Library learned about civic engagement from Pokémon Go - Generocity Philly
    Yes, Pokémon Go is still a thing. The augmented reality game for smartphones exploded in Summer 2016 and while its popularity has certainly dwindled, it still had 65 million active monthly users a year out (and still prompts meetups in Philadelphia). The game can obviously bring people together.
