Philly Bookshelf provides bookshelves and books to individuals, business, and community groups to share with the public.

We rely on Hosts in the community to look after the bookshelves, including installation, basic maintenance, hosting book drives or letting us know when more books are needed, and encouraging use of the Community Bookshelf.

By becoming a Host of a Community Bookshelf, you will become the caretaker of so much more than a simple structure. You will be increasing access to books while building a sense of community.  



Let's Get Started...

Complete the form below to request a Community Bookshelf and we will contact you as quickly as we can.   

Please note that we are continually working to place as many Community Bookshelves in the Philadelphia region as possible. We strive to meet the needs of each location that requests books or bookshelves, but cannot guarantee that we will be able to immediately assist you with installation of a Community Bookshelf.
