The Boston Public Library is an amazing place to visit. Even if you don't crack open a book the entire time you are in the facility, you will walk away enlightened! The building...

Good library with a history. 7/26/2009

The library is ok. The staff is diverse. They also have commercials on tvThis library is an historic library in Boston. It's very quiet so good to study whatever subject. They have staff that will help you with colleges information and more. Truereview here to tell you the truth. more

Super Place to Visit 4/23/2006

You could spend the better part of day wandering around the BPL. It's a great experience on many levels. You can check out the Sargent murals, poke around special exhibits, wander through the big reading room (which reminds me very much of the main reading room at UC Berkeley), or just browse the books. Do watch your wallet/purse/bag since a lot of homeless people like to spend the day in here, too, especially in winter. Be aware that if you want to borrow a book and are not a resident of Boston, you will need to register first (you can borrow books with your card from another Minuteman Library, but you need to register in a separate room before check out). Now they have a nice cafe here, too. Check out their free films and lectures and other events. more

More like a museum than a library (but still filled with books - The best of both worlds!) 10/7/2005

The Boston Public Library is an amazing place to visit. Even if you don't crack open a book the entire time you are in the facility, you will walk away enlightened! The building is one of the most beautiful architectural masterpieces in Boston. It truly feels like a museum throughout the building! There is an amazing courtyard in the center of the building where you can relax on a bench and read a book. In these days of consumerism, people tend to forget about the luxury of a free library, where you can have access to any book in the world! I highly recommend a visit! Enjoy! more
