Boston Globe's Brian McGrory's Library Column 2/26/10

The Boston Globe's Brian McGrory visited his old public library in Roslindale recently and described the emotional center it holds in the neighborhood: "Amid the activity and familiarity, a thought came to me wrapped in dread: If the powers that be in Boston shutter library branches, as they warned they may do, this city will never be the same. The reality is, a library isn’t merely a building with books, but a place where all things are

possible. Here in Roslindale Square, there are classic novels, anthologies of English poetry, travel books that take readers to exotic destinations, and history books that transport them to better times."
