Hi! I'm Linsey. And odds are, you've heard enough stories like mine: Thirty-something writer/runner moves to the city, falls in love, rescues a tiny dog (and a big cat—they're buddies).
So I'm not here to tell my story. I'm here because I want to help others access the resources they need to tell their stories instead.
The fact is, I've been lucky. Lucky to have access to countless books, community programs, technology, and resources that enabled me to escape, to learn, to empathize, to feel, to grow.
Now, I am honored for the opportunity to support the Boston Public Library (BPL), which has been realizing those same kinds of opportunities for millions of people since 1848.
I can hardly believe that my dream of running the Boston Marathon is becoming real, and I couldn't be more grateful to be running in support of the life-changing BPL.
Please join me in supporting BPL through the 2020 Boston Marathon!
Boston Public Library has a Central Library, twenty-five branches, map center, business library, and a website filled with digital content and services. Established in 1848, the Boston Public Library has pioneered public library service in America. It was the first large free municipal library in the United States, the first public library to lend books, the first to have a branch library, and the first to have a children’s room. Each year, the Boston Public Library hosts thousands of programs and serves millions of people. All of its programs and exhibitions are free and open to the public. At the Boston Public Library, books are just the beginning. To learn more, visit bpl.org.
