Description

The Associates of the Boston Public Library is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving the Boston Public Library's special collections of rare books, manuscripts, prints, drawings, musical scores, works of art, and other items of significant historic interest. The Associates works to ensure continued public access to these irreplaceable treasures by underwriting their conservation, cataloging, digitization, and exhibition. Through these efforts, the Associates is helping the Boston Public Library to achieve its fundamental mission of providing the highest level of free educational resources to the citizens of the Commonwealth, as well as preserving knowledge, culture and history for the benefit of all. The Associates oversees both the David McCullough Conservation Fund and the William O. Taylor Fund.

Since its founding in 1972, the Associates has been the creator and underwriter of a wide array of programs, designed to heighten public awareness of the Boston Public Library's vast free educational resources. These programs have included Literary Lights awards, art and architecture tours, readings, lectures, curatorial evenings, exhibitions, music events, and discussions of current events featuring key decision makers. The Associates also funds an annual residency for an emerging children's writer. To learn more, visit www.TheAssociates.org.
