Maybe you’ve seen him hanging out on the front steps of Parkway Central Library as you stop by to check out the latest bestseller, attend an author event, or listen to classical recordings in our renovated Music Department. He’s a little hard to miss, with his bright orange jumpsuit, outstretched arms, and, um, unusual facial features. Oh, and his green fur, of course.

One of twenty Phanatic statues in place across Philadelphia as part of the “Phanatic Around Town” public art project, “P. Phanatic Star Voyager” has welcomed customers to Parkway Central since April, but he won’t be around forever! Now through the end of August, be sure to snap a photo with our space-age Phanatic statue the next time you visit the Library--we’d love to feature it on our blog!

Email your photos to along with a brief comment about why you love your library, and we’ll choose some of the best to highlight. You can also enter your photos in the photo contest. Say cheese!

Working on the Phanatic Project has been quite an honor for me. Having my Phanatic installed at the library only added to the experience. I've been to many lectures and book signings there. I want to thank the library for hosting my project and all the Philadelphia fans for visiting the statues all over town this summer. Cliff Lentz creator, P. Phanatic: Star Voyager
