Imagining a Brighter Future for Boston and Beyond
Supported by passionate citizens from across the Commonwealth, the Boston Public Library Fund provides essential resources to help the BPL realize its mission and serve the common good.
The Fund in Action
The BPL’s Anti-Slavery Collection—one of the largest and most important repositories of abolitionist material in the United States—contains approximately 40,000 pieces of correspondence, broadsides, newspapers, pamphlets, books, and memorabilia from the 1830s through the 1870s.
Named for one of the most inspiring spaces in the Central Library, Patrons of the Courtyard is the Boston Public Library Fund’s leadership annual giving program.
