Video – Ceremony to Re-Open the 2nd Floor of the Central Library in Copley Square

by Christine Schonhart

Boston Public Library welcomed people of all ages to the opening of the renovated second floor on February 21. Joined by Mayor Martin J. Walsh, Bostonians celebrated the opening of the Children’s Library, Teen Central, and reference services in the library’s Johnson building. Children explored their new space, read books, and played with the smart table, while teens checked out video games and the new software in their digital lab.  Adults browsed the nonfiction section and sat reading books, enjoying the new community reading area called Boylston Common.
