Step Into History & Literature at the Boston Public Library

A monumental building stands upon Boylston Street, standing tall in its magnificence and telling century old tales of Boston. This very building is none other than the Boston Public Library. Holding secrets of history, culture and customs, it stands tall since the day it has made its home there.

The Great and General Court of Massachusetts founded the Boston Public Library and was the first ever-free library in the United States of America. Founded in 1848, this historical public library is a gift to community, offering people the love for knowledge and education. Initially held in an old schoolhouse on Mason Street, it was later relocated to the building that stands tall today on Boylston Street. An architectural marvel created by architect Charles Follen McKim, it was also known to some as “The Palace for the People”.

Since its inception, the Boston Public Library, or BPL as it is commonly referred to, has expanded into branch libraries. The McKim building as well as the Johnson building designed by Phillip Johnson forms the BPL. These two buildings form the headquarters form the many branches of the library, which spans across Boston city.

Apart from the vast collection of books and research material, the library also boasts the possession of many valued objects, such as rare books and manuscripts, antique maps, musical scores and prints. Some of those objects include several early edition folios of William Shakespeare, some musical scores by Mozart and John Adams’s personal library.

The Boston Public Library is not just a structure holding secrets of knowledge, but also it holds its own secret treasures, such as Bates Hall. The Bates Hall is known as one of the most important rooms in the world architecturally. The hall which is named in honor of Joshua Bates, a merchant banker from London who was born in Massachusetts, is a half domed beauty with oak and limestone furniture and fittings. The décor includes the busts of famed Bostonians and revered authors.

The Boston Public Library holds many galleries such as the Chavannes Gallery, The Abbey Room and the Sergeant Gallery. The library also allows for library tours around this architectural marvel.

Visit the Boston Public Library and be awed by the sheer beauty and grandiosity of the structure and everything it possesses while staying at the Taj Boston, a five star hotel located close to the library. This Boston luxury hotel offers guests lavish accommodation coupled with quality services and warm hospitality.

I'm 34, and have probably close to 1000 books if not more. I try to keep them in book shelves, but I've only got enough shelves for hundreds, so the rest are scattered around the house in drawers, on dressers and desks, nightstands, and in totes in my closet (they don't go into totes until I've finished reading them, though).

I mostly like horror and suspense books like Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, and Dean Koontz but I will read anything that captures my attention. I have a couple of romance novels (though I read them from time to time, they aren't my favorites...they just keep my mind working along 'fantasy' lines for my writing). Mostly, my collection is old texts from when I was studying music therapy (I kept my favorites and added non-required texts that interested me when I would shop the used section of the college bookstore), the collection of Stephen Kings I was ordering from the King Library, Greek mythology and other mythology, books about mythological creatures (unicorns, fairies, dragons), self help books, books on writing, fiction, nonfiction, drama, comedy, poetry...you pick a genre or topic, and I probably have at least one or two selections! I also have many books from my childhood that I kept like the "Little House on the Prairie" series by Laura Ingall's Wilder.

Right now, it seems that the books going into my collection are books about natural health remedies, yoga, spirituality, and reincarnation, as these things have always appealed to me...I've always wanted to learn. Still looking for books on Hispanic, African, and Welsh cultures (to teach my daughter about her ethnic backgrounds and learn about mine), and I've added a few Spanish books to the mix since I'm trying to learn Spanish. I think there might even be some of my old French studies books from high school.

It's hard to say that I get extra time. I work almost sixty hours a week and am taking college courses and trying to teach myself Spanish, plus I have to make time to get at least a bit of writing in to keep me writing, so time is not something I get a lot of these days, but I always make time day by day to get at least a little reading in. The benefits are that I have carefully chosen a selection of books that keep my mind active, but at the same time interest me enough so that reading isn't like work. Pleasure reading is meant as a way to unwind from my stress and give my brain a break from the required classroom reading (which is especially helpful when I get put in a class that holds no appeal for me!), but still teaches me something. You can even find little life learning experiences in works of fiction, so I love settling down to those too. Reading pretty much takes me out of my boring existance and puts me into new worlds so, in a way, I'm experiencing new things I might never get the chance to experience without books...like religious structures in India or artwork in Paris...places I'll most likely never get to visit.

I am a "professional" factory worker, farmer, and college student who aspires to be a published author and editor. 🙂
