Catherine Willis Book Talk: Hiding in Plain Sight: Images from the Boston Public Library's Archives
One of the great civic and cultural success stories in American history, the Boston Public Library opened to the public in 1848 in two rooms in a school-house. By 1895, when the grand new central library had been completed in Copley Square, 29 branches and reading rooms had been created. Local author and BPL Manager of Technical and Digital Services Catherine Willis reveals BPL images not seen by the public in more than 160 years. Free and open to the public. Reservations not required.
