Boston Public Library - Central BranchThe Central branch located in the heart of Copley Square is an architectural wonder that beckons visitors to come inside.

The Central library offers Preschool Story Time, a five- or six-week series, for ages two and a half to five, led by performers and famous musicians, as well as by the children's librarians. You must register in advance as the library tries to limit size to 25 to 30 children.

The library also has other story hours, workshops and short films based on children's books. Call or check the web site for the most recent schedule.

One of the hidden secrets of our library system is the coveted Discount Museum Pass program. It's a terrific way to visit area museums for a fraction of the cost. Each location has one pass per day, per museum. All passes must be reserved by an adult or teen with a valid Metro-Boston library card.* Children must be accompanied by an adult. You can reserve the passes online and then pick them up at your local branch.
