November 14, 1732

This Saturday, November 14, marks a very important date in library history. On this day, in 1732, the Library Company of Philadelphia hired its first librarian and officially opened its doors to the public. The Library Company of Philadelphia was founded by Ben Franklin in 1731, and is still open today. For more information about the Library Company of Philadelphia, as well as the PA State Library, check back next week.
