Boston: L is for Library

Welcome to my third year participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. This year’s theme is BOSTON.

Today’s letter is L which will showcase the Library.

The Boston Public Library (BPL) is an institution. Even those who don’t love books as much as I do will find the history and architecture amazing. But for bibliophiles like myself, the BPL is an oasis.

Copley Square: The Library is to the south… Trinity Church
to the north… and the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel between the two.
I took advantage of the free library tour.
Our guide was quite knowledgeable and eager
to answer any questions about his favorite institution.

Majestic marble statue … surrounded by art.

I could live here… the quiet space… the dim lights…
the mahogany desks … the academic vibe.

Afternoon Tea… what an elegant treat!
The menu is served in vintage hardback books
The selection of savory sandwiches and sweet treats
is perfection. The hot tea is calm and soothing.
