The GetUp Crew

Weekdays 6:00am - 10:00am

I am a huge fan of the library. Not only is it a place to get a good book, but for many it’s a place to study, to connect with others, to learn, and for some to feel safe. Today’s libraries have evolved and now offer more than they did in the past. At the Boston Public Library, and other libraries, you can rent movies, ebooks, audiobooks, get CD’s, participate in special programs for kids and teens. There are author events, music and film festivals, and so much more. I have spent a lot of time in libraries, and it’s there, many years ago, that I started reading to kids.

In Boston, Mayor Michelle Wu and BPL President David Leonard, announced a new program that would allow residents to borrow free Wi-Fi routers and Chromebooks through the library. Wu says that the internet is a critical lifeline for Boston residents, but financially inaccessible for many.

The branches of the Boston Public Library will host a sign-up day for the program on June 21st to help residents gain access to library resources.

You can apply for the program HERE. And you can also get answers to lots of FAQs.
