Associates of the Boston Public Library
The Associates of the Boston Public Library is an independent nonprofit dedicated to conserving the Boston Public Library (BPL)’s Special Collections of rare books, manuscripts, prints, drawings, musical scores, and items of literary, cultural and historic interest. The organization is committed to ensuring continued public access to these irreplaceable treasures by underwriting their cataloging, repair, restoration, digitization, and exhibition.
Over the past 45 years, the Associates has been the creator and underwriter of a wide array of programs, designed to heighten public awareness of the Library's vast free educational resources. These programs include art and architecture tours, readings, lectures, curatorial evenings, exhibitions, music events, and an annual residency for emerging authors. The Associates oversees the David McCullough Conservation Fund and the William O. Taylor Art Preservation Fund.
