Boston Public Library

My last installment of my Boston Bucket List is the beautiful and historic, Boston Public Library. Regrettably, I lived in Boston for almost a year, passing this gigantic architectural beauty without stepping inside! I, of course, took full advantage of my North End Branch of the library, but it wasn’t quite as breathtaking as getting the full feel of the second largest public library in the United States. The Boston Public Library was established in 1848 and was the first publicly supported municipal library in the United States. It became the first large library open to the public in the US and the first public library to allow the people of the community to check out books and other materials for home use.

At the heart of the library, lies an outdoor garden and fountain area. This would be the perfect place to relax and catch up on some reading.

The contrast of the classic architecture where people go to see the library, compared to the new part of the library that is utilized, was very interesting.
