The BPL Compass

Next Roundtable: Tuesday, July 10

by Gina Perille

The next Compass Roundtable will take place on Tuesday, July 10, at 12:30pm in the Orientation Room at the Central Library in Copley Square.

On July 10, join in a discussion about the Fun principle with Exhibitions Manager Beth Prindle.

The Fun principle states: The BPL leads the way for people of all ages with recreational reading and media, invigorating programs, user-created content, and opportunities for discovery in settings that are stimulating and engaging.

The planned outcomes under the Fun principle are:

  • Connect people to popular books, music, films, and artwork – whether the materials are brand new or simply new to select audiences.
  • Embrace role as a cultural and entertainment hub in the City of Boston.
  • Create an engaging and positive atmosphere for library users and staff.
  • Showcase the library’s collections through vibrant, interactive exhibitions and programs.

If you are not able to joins us in person, you are always welcome to leave a comment on this blog or send an email to with your ideas.

    The administration of The Boston Public Library loses some creditability when they hold public meeting in the middle of the day when most of the community is at work.
