The Organization

  

A leading American historian has called the Public Library of the City of Boston “one of the five great libraries of the world.”

 

Well over 3.5 million people visit the Boston Public Library every year to use its collection of 6 million books. Another 5.2 million people connect with the BPL through its website www.bpl.org to take advantage of its many services and its growing collection of electronic resources, downloadable media and digitalized rare books and manuscripts.

 

Among its preeminent collections, the BPL holds several first edition folios by William Shakespeare; original music scores by Mozart, Prokofiev and others; and the personal library of President John Adams.  In addition, the BPL is home to the renowned Norman B. Leventhal Map Center, which includes over 200,000 historic maps and 5,000 atlases documenting the evolution of the printed map.

 

Over 12,000 programs and classes attract thousands of residents from across the diverse neighborhoods and cultural groups that make up the city. Award winning online and in-library homework assistance sessions, ESL and literacy classes, are also a popular draw.
