“Inside the Combat Zone: The Stripped Down Story of Boston's Most Notorious Neighborhood”
A Book Presentation Hosted by The Friends of the Charlestown Branch Library
The Friends of the Charlestown Branch of the Boston Public Library was formed in 1953, becoming the second Friends group to organize within the Boston Public Library system. The Friends schedule four to six evening programs a year, support the Reading is FUNdamental programs for children, and maintain the library’s landscaping.
The mission of the Friends remains today what it was in 1953: to serve as an advocacy and support group for the needs of the Charlestown Branch Library, its staff and users.
