I have a crush. On the Boston Public Library. Don’t tell Tompkins County, ok?
I was on the way to replenish my supply of cardigans and sensible shoes at the Anthropologie store on Boylston Street, when I happened across the Boston Public Library. Our eyes met across the line of cabs and homeless men, and a shiver went through me. I had encountered the Library on a previous visit, but hadn’t noticed the sexy inscription on its side:
“The commonwealth requires the education of the people as the safeguard of order and liberty”
When I got home, I e-stalked the Boston Public Library. A quick conversation with the Mass 24/7 librarian revealed that the inscription was written by the library’s Board of Trustees. Wow! A hot library that still gets along with its parents. Not bad.
