In 1909 Penn Alumni established the Benjamin Franklin Library Fund. A gift in the past for the future.

Today the Library's electronic catalog, FRANKLIN, is the gateway not only to millions of printed materials, but electronic resources comprising the equivalent of two million printed books—unimagined in 1909!

The Penn Library of the 22nd Century? Funds such as this will ensure that the Library will be financially sound for the generations to come.
