Celebrating the BPL renovations for young readers

Are you ready for another great reason to love the Boston Public Library? Well, BPL’s Central Library in Copley Square (700 Boylston Street) is getting ready for you! Saturday, February 21st – that is just next weekend – marks the grand reopening of the second floor of the Johnson building. So we are starting the countdown to a brand new children’s library, teen area with media resources like a 3D printer, tween area for digital learning, crafting, and collaboration, nonfiction collection, reference services, and a community reading area. When the clock strikes 11am the ribbon will be cut allowing Boston’s teen and child readers to flood the new space built just for them to learn and play. Here’s a great quote from Amy E. Ryan, President of the Boston Public Library to get you in the celebratory spirit, “It’s fitting that so much of the first phase of this renovation is dedicated to some of our youngest users. Serving Boston’s children and families is at the heart of this project. This is the place where future leaders, readers, and makers can come to connect with one another, their city, and the larger world of ideas.” So we’ll see you at the library to let our imaginations soar!
