BOSTON – In honor of Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s fifth inaugural, the eight Community Learning Initiative branches of the Boston Public Library are hosting neighborhood celebrations for families throughout the day on Saturday, January 2.
At the City of Boston 2010 Inaugural Celebrations @the Boston Public Library, families will be treated to free performances, refreshments, and book giveaways for children as part of city-wide celebratory events. One-hour performances will generally start 30 minutes in to each event.
The branches participating are already part of Mayor Menino’s Community Learning Initiative which teams schools, community centers, and libraries in neighborhood throughout the city to provide coordinated educational and after-school activities for Boston kids. These branches are: Adams Street, Codman Square, Grove Hall, Honan-Allston, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Parker Hill, and Roslindale. The Grove Hall and Mattapan branches both have brand new facilities opened by Mayor Menino in 2009.
