Established in 1848, the Boston Public Library is free to all, and has a great collection of books. The architecture of the old library is very regal and a beautiful sight to see. The new library is modern and is an extension of the old historic architecture - the 2 connected by a beautiful courtyard.
One of the best public libraries that I've been to. There're two building, old building has really nice architecture inside and it's really quiet. New building has more space and a large collection of books. Apparently this place is so popular, it gets full by 10am in the morning on weekend.
Get yo read on at the Boston Public Library. So much history and art in/out of this building.
Amazing architecture!!! I couldn't take my eyes off of the ceiling. Those lions are awesome. everything's so alive in there.
