Excerpt from The Boston Public Library: Annual Report for the Year Ending June 30, 1992; Document 15

At the time of the Boston Public Library's centennial anniversary in 1952, Boston's distinguished poet David mccord walked through the halls of the Library and described the people he saw there: anxious youth and the happy octogenarian rub elbows at the reading table. The escapist is lonely wife and the ambitious phrase man in search of his home-town newspaper and the high school girl in quest of a light in a terrible mid-year darkness. And today we would surely remember the homeless man who wrote in the Boston Globe how a summer in the stacks transformed his world.

This year we are mindful more than ever of our Library constituencies. As we seek funds to restore the great mckim edifice and to expand ser vice to all, we take stock in images and in words, of where we are and where we aim to go. All the drama and vitality of the Library's collections and services, all the special attention to the needs and concerns of the peo ple of Boston and beyond are recorded in the annual report which follows.
