The Library Company of Philadelphia, founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1731, was the first circulating library in America. Today, it is an independent research library with more than a half a million books, graphics and other rare printed items from the 18th and 19th centuries. The Library Company is the only major early American library to survive intact and as such, it provides an interesting example of the book culture of early America. The library has an extensive collection of English and American novels, plays, poems and narratives.

Esta es una de las joyas de la corona del mundo cultural de Filadelfia desde su inauguración en 1857. La fachada simple y Federalista de ladrillo da paso a un interior ornamentado repleto de lámparas de estilo Art Decó, almohadones de terciopelo y posiblemente la araña más grande de la Costa Este. La Orquesta de Filadelfia, el Ballet de Pensilvania y algunos espectáculos de ópera y pop se presentan en la academia. Algunos han hecho críticas sobre la acústica y la visibilidad, pero en realidad nada importa ya que es aquí donde se presentan los grandes espectáculos.
