Cool + Collected: Treasures of the Boston Public Library is a year-long exhibition celebrating over 160 years of collecting by the BPL. Featuring some of the most beautiful, rare, and unexpected holdings from the library’s rich special collections, this exhibition provides an unprecedented opportunity for visitors to view fine prints, maps, manuscripts, rare books, photographs, paintings, architectural drawings, posters, musical scores, and more. Cool + Collected has three chapters. Each of the three rotations features all new items; visitors are encouraged to return to see each version. Chapter 2 arrives in October 2009; Chapter 3 in February 2010.
