About the Rosenbach
The Rosenbach creates programs and exhibitions inspired by a collection of nearly 400,000 rare books, manuscripts, and fine and decorative arts objects, including some of the best-known literary and historical objects in the world. The Rosenbach’s programs – from Reading Courses to literary cocktail parties – serve people from around the corner and around the globe.
At The Rosenbach we foster inquiry, learning, and creative thought by engaging audiences in programs, exhibitions, and research inspired by our collections. In December 2013, The Rosenbach became afﬁliated with the Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation, bringing together two of the world’s preeminent collections of rare books, manuscripts, Americana and art. The combined holdings of The Rosenbach and the Free Library of Philadelphia inspire unique exhibitions and programs throughout the year.
