Where to Read in Philly

Our city has a wealth of resources for children, no matter what their interests. Here are three of our favorite local picks for the young and budding bookworm.

Rosenbach Museum: This museum is a bit under-the-radar, tucked away in a tiny street right off of Rittenhouse Square. But here you’ll find rotating exhibitions and special programs that celebrate the works of beloved children’s authors like Lewis Carroll and Maurice Sendak. Check back often, as there’s always bound to be something new on display to fascinate the whole family.

Free Library of Philadelphia: This one may seem like an obvious choice, but the main branch of the library is so much more than just a place to kick back and read a Dr. Seuss book for free. Check the calendar for regular events like storytime, music workshops, and more!

Please Touch Museum: We all remember playing with toys here. And then of course there’s the appeal of the carousel. But within the museum you can also find Wordsworth’s Cottage, a space for your children to explore the world of literacy in a rustic setting just their size.
