If you know me, you know how much I love Boston, running, and libraries (particularly the traveling kind). While working for the Franklin Grand Isle Bookmobile, I saw first-hand how critically important access to books, early childhood literacy programming, and afterschool education is. I am thrilled to be a part of raising money to ensure these crucial services continue to reach every corner of the city I love, and can think of no better way to round out three years of law school here than by crossing the 124th marathon finish line as part of the Boston Public Libraries team.
BPL has a Central Library, twenty-five branches, a map center, a business library, and a website filled with digital content and services. The money raised from this marathon team will go far - $250 buys approximately 15 books, $4100 funds a year of homework help at one branch, and $2000 funds three months of STEM programming for teens. Each year, the Boston Public Library hosts thousands of programs and serves millions of people. I can personally attest that the reading rooms are great places to study for exams, and all of BPL's programs and exhibitions are free and open to the public. To learn more, visit bpl.org.
