This was my childhood library, where I first discovered a love for reading. The building is antique and quite charming, situated on the banks of the Charles. I would curl up with a book on the window seat by the huge picture window overlooking the Charles and escape. I could walk there from home, and the librarian let me call her by her first name, never charged me overdue fines, always had a new book for me, and saved the best ones for my visits. Heaven.
