The holiday season is a time to gather and give thanks for our good fortune and to look forward to a new year. Here at the Boston Public Library Foundation, we are grateful for the generosity that you and others have shown in supporting the programs featured in the snowflakes above. Your gifts make it possible for the library to share programs with people of all ages in every neighborhood of Boston, always free and open to the public.
None of this would be possible without you. Thank you!
Before we turn the calendar to 2015, please consider making a year-end donation to the Boston Public Library Foundation. Your gift will help us continue to support Boston Public Library programs throughout the City of Boston in the new year.
