"Never trust people who don't have something in their lives that they love beyond all reason." --Frederik Backman, Beartown
I love two things this way: the Boston Marathon and books, so I am honored to run the 2020 Boston Marathon for #TeamBPL. I love what the library stands for and all the good that it does in my community (see below for more about library offerings!) and running the Boston Marathon has been a dream of mine for years. The Marathon is my absolute favorite day of the year and I believe experiencing the race is the best way to get a sense of the city. I could not be more excited to get to experience it from a whole new perspective: running it! Any contributions would be greatly appreciated on this journey and I will make sure to keep all of my supporters updated along the journey. Happy running, thank you so much!
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.
