Boston Public Library

Designed as a “palace for the people,” it is the oldest large free-lending library in the United States. Visit the breath-taking Bates Hall, the library’s magnificent reading room. It is the only public library to house a Presidential Library, that of John Adams, the second president of the United States of America.
