- Created Date
- Ca. 1966
In 1914, the South Philadelphia Branch opened in an Andrew Carnegie-funded building at Broad and Ritner Streets. In 1965, the branch relocated to Broad & Morris Streets. (The original building became the Ritner Childrens Library until 1999, when it was incorporated into an adjoining community center as a multi-purpose room.) This ca. 1966 exterior view of the new building highlights the bronze sculpture located under the tree in the front plaza. Titled Mother and Child, it was created for the library by Evelyn Kaiser in 1965. The South Philadelphia Branch serves the north central area of South Philadelphia.
