The Boston Public Library (BPL) announced it has received $2.1 million in private funding to revitalize the library’s Founding Research Collection. Two gifts are making this work possible: a contribution to the Boston Public Library Fund through an anonymous donor, and another from the Associates of the Boston Public Library. These funds will enable the library to clean, catalog, and preserve 400,000 volumes of the collection, making them fully accessible to the public for the first time in the digital era.
