“After an extensive renovation, the Brighton branch of the BPL reopened in December 2010 and today is one of the nicest places in Boston to relax and catch up on reading. Curl up on the lounge area’s beautiful red couch, overlooking the library’s serenity garden, or enjoy one of the bean-shaped chairs in the story nook or a high-rise table in the teen café area. The branch offers a wide selection of readings, lectures, and concerts and has a good collection of books on Brighton-Allston history, as well as photographs from the Brighton-Allston Historical Society’s archives. Oral histories of Brighton residents will soon be available online, and the library also offers a wide selection of reading materials in Spanish and Russian. Find a calendar of events here. The library is one of the first renovated buildings in Boston to incorporate U.S. Green Building Council LEED standards.”
