I appreciate how helpful and friendly the folks at the Brighton branch are. It's a pleasure to go there and reap the benefits of the library. Thank you to the staff!
My family loves the library for all the free programs! Gives us something free to do with the kids. Please keep up the good work, you've been a lifeline!
The BPL library is my happy place. I love that I can find books in my native language French and watch movies in different languages via Kanopy. I love the physical space, exhibitions and the staff!
I love the library! It's the best deal in town! Keep up the good work.
the library is a gateway to infinite worlds and the second I open a book I step into that world and that story. I am so grateful that I have access to free books.
As a child, reading will take you places you've never imagine. As a youth + an adult, it will help you be understood, expand your knowledge, + set you up for a good career. BPL...dream + learn.

Thank you Borrower Services staff for all that you do! You're always so helpful when I stop in for a visit! Happy Holidays!
I love stopping by the library to check out the Lucky Day shelf. It makes me feel extra lucky to find a book I want to read on that shelf and the time limit keeps me motivated.
Symbolic of a history of lineage, literacy, and legend. In a world of haves and have nots it’s important to have a place for all, The Boston Public Library is that place.

I started to bring my daughter to our local library when she was in elementary school. She essentially grew up at the library. Thank you BPL for your support and resources
The librarians at my branch has seen me grow up. I would like to thank BPL for providing me wonderful books, access to a computer, and a safe space to complete homework afterschool.
As a BPS teacher, I appreciate all our collaborations with the public library! I love that students can have books delivered to their schools, and that BPL librarians are working so hard to support us
The reason that people love Boston Public Library is that people love stories to tell, stories to share, and the fact is it wouldn't be perfect without books.
Roxbury BPL Librarians are always courteous and helpful! Most of all are also the engaging events, workshops offered to the community. Thank YOU!
My family love the BPL, every week we pick up a new supply of picture books for the kids. Thank you for all that you do!
