Boston unveils renovations to Public Library

BOSTON (WHDH) - The City of Boston unveiled the new and improved Boston Public Library Saturday.

Dozens of people attended the grand reopening Saturday morning.

The $78 million renovation included an updated interior, new technology, and another cafe.

Mayor Marty Walsh spoke before the ribbon-cutting ceremony about the positive impact the renovated library will have on the city.

“It’s a place where everyone can learn,” Walsh said. “This is a space for people to grow as individuals, and also for us to grow as a community.”

Boston will also invest in local libraries across the city, spending $90 million over the next five years on the improvements.
