The BPL Annex is a unique community space offering select library services leading up to the opening of Adams Street Library, BPL's first new branch in more than 30 years. At the Annex, patrons will be able to access free WiFi, borrow a laptop on-site, pick up materials on hold and borrow from a small collection. On Wednesday and Friday mornings, the Annex offers programming for babies, toddlers and young children. Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Annex hosts after-school programs for kids, tweens, and teens, and evening programs for adults. Programming and services are responsive to the neighborhood, and reflect the needs of the community. Join us at the Annex to attend an event, read a book while enjoying the waterfront view, work on a laptop, or participate in a community meeting to help plan the new Adams Street Library!
