BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY

The library serves the people of Boston, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and beyond. Your generosity insures that we can preserve and enhance the library's facilities throughout the city, its incredible collections, and the many vital programs and services for children, families, and lifelong learners.

Our goal is to help the library realize its strategic vision as outlined in the BPL Compass: Principles for Excellence. Currently, the foundation is seeking funding for the following areas:

Programs -- The library hosts a variety of programs for children and teens including the Homework Assistance Program, Read Your Way to Fenway, and story times for toddlers and young readers. Designate your gift to The Next Generation Fund to support general programs for children and teens throughout the city.

The library hosts thousands of programs for adults each year including speaker series, English as a Second Language (ESL) courses, author readings, concerts in the courtyard, movie screenings, and career and tax preparation courses.

Facilities -- The Boston Public Library System encompasses 27 locations throughout Boston neighborhoods, including the landmark Central Library in Copley Square. Wide-ranging needs for facility improvements include funding for preservation of the historic 1895 McKim Building and updating many neighborhood branch locations.

TALKING POINTS
"We need to shift our national view of libraries not as luxuries, but as necessities. When tragedy strikes in other nations, Americans are generous, but our libraries are being hit with a tsunami and there has been no call to action."
- Karin Slaughter

LIBRARIES NEED OUR SUPPORT
We are ALL being asked to do more with less -- but what can you do without an education?

Where would YOU today be without the library in your past or present? Can you face a future without a local library?

When the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards—their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble—the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when he sees us coming with our books under our arms, "Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them here. They have loved reading."
~Virginia Woolf
