The Library Company of Philadelphia is pleased to announce a pop-up exhibition opening February 2018. Since August 2015, social media curators Concetta Barbera and Arielle Middleman have created collections-based content for more than 700 original posts shared across four major social media platforms, and have garnered an online following of over 17,000 people and peer institutions. From gold-stamped publisher’s bindings to innovative GIFs featuring Library Company materials, #GiltyPleasures will be a showcase of social media’s greatest hits and curators’ favorites, as well as a chance to ‘like’ your favorite post in real life.

Library Company exhibitions are supported in part by:

Pennsylvania Council on the Arts

Philadelphia Cultural Fund
