This Father’s Day, Honor Your Dad

by Alison Murphy

This June, the Boston Public Library Foundation is celebrating Dads. Our dads did so much – from teaching us how to read and helping us with our homework, to letting us borrow their favorite books (and not getting angry when we returned them dog-eared). What better way to honor these contributions than making a contribution of your own?  Make a gift in honor of your father or another special man in your life, and we will show our gratitude by dedicating one of our books with a bookplate in his name. We will also be posting stories all month on our facebook page about fathers, and how they influenced our love of reading. Got a story about your Dad? Tell us here!

This Father’s Day, thank your Dad for sharing with you his love of reading, by sharing that gift with others. Give today, and then share your story. On behalf of all of us here at the Boston Public Library Foundation, Happy Father’s Day, and thanks for celebrating with us.
