Description

One of the most trusted and esteemed libraries in the world, the Boston Public Library system was established in 1848. The largest library system in Massachusetts, the library houses a collection of 8.9 million books. With a helpful staff that is focused on interrogation technology to make for a better user experience, the Boston Library hosts monthly education sessions to help those unfamiliar with all the services offered. Located in one of Boston's many castle-like structures, the library is a comfortable and visually impressive place to spend the afternoon. Offering much more than just books, the Boston Public Library is a education and entertainment haven.
