Today, the BPL boasts 27 neighborhood branches, free Internet access, two unique restaurants, and award-winning website www.bpl.org and an online store featuring reproductions of the BPL’s priceless photographs and artwork. Each year, the BPL hosts nearly 5000 programs, answers more than one million reference questions and serves millions of people in its National Historic Landmark McKim Building in Copley Square. All of its programs and exhibits are free and open to the public. At the Boston Public Library, books are just the beginning!
