Copley Square and Boston Public Library

I went to Copley Square and the Boston Public Library monday morning. I've lived here almost 8 years and this is my first time to the Library and the Square. I've driven by plenty of times, but never walked through it.

Two from inside the old Library building. Most people think of this building when they refer to the library, but it's actually the old library. The current one is attached to the back of this building.
