Oldest public library in United States.


Oldest public library in United States.

Founded by Quakers in 1743, this is the oldest continuously operating public library in the U.S. It has been in its current home since 1872. The library is underfunded and the building is in bad shape, but people are working to save it. This information is from yesterday's Philadelphia Inquirer, at p. A3.
