This tour has reached capacity.

Founded in 1802, Jenkins is America’s First Law Library. It is a membership law library that also serves as the public law library for the City and County of Philadelphia. Jenkins houses a fine portrait gallery and its collection of more than 250,000 volumes includes extensive current materials, as well as centuries-old rare legal documents.

The library is a blend of old and new and underwent a major renovation 7 years ago.  It often refers to itself as “the library without walls” as many of its databases are available to members remotely whether at the office, at home or commuting on the train.  Its website was recently updated and contains original content such as Pennsylvania Legislative Histories as well as briefs and records.  Jenkins conducts a successful CLE program taught by staff librarians as well as its members.  It has a staff of 32 employees.

Walking tour: 10 minute walk
