The Free Library of Philadelphia

What’s This All About, Then?

If you live in the state of Pennsylvania, you can get a free membership to the Free Library of Philadelphia.

Why Would I Want to Do That?

This will get you access to their impressive collection of ebooks and audiobooks.

How Long Does it Take to Sign Up?

About a minute.

When Does My Membership Start?


Can I Read the eBooks on my Kindle or Listen to the Audiobooks in Audible?

No, but the library will point you to other apps that do the same thing. These apps are also free.

What’s the Catch?

It’s a library, so you’re only borrowing the books. After you read them or listen to them, you have to “return” them. Also, only a certain number of patrons can have any book out at one time, so you might have to wait a while to get the books you want.
