During National Library Week, we called upon our community to rally together and raise its collective voice in support of all that the Boston Public Library stands for, as a center for democracy, a facilitator of growth and opportunity, and a haven that is welcoming to all.

We’re ecstatic to share that over 650 generous donors came together to help unlock $110,000 in matching funds and to raise more than $220,000 for the Boston Public Library Fund. We couldn’t be more grateful or inspired!

Thank you to our matching gift sponsors:

We hope you enjoy the video below, illustrating the impact of what we can achieve together!

There's More to the Story​

At the Boston Public Library, there’s always more to the story: more to discover in Special Collections; more to learn in the Nutrition Lab; more to explore in the Children’s Library; and much more than a paradise of books for those seeking essential information and resources. Be sure to follow along all week as we highlight the stories, treasures, programs, and services that make the Boston Public Library the unparalleled community resource it is today.
