- The Boston Public Library is more than just a place to borrow books . Historically significant as the first public library in the country, it is designed more like a museum than anything else. A stunning courtyard and restaurant are part of this space, and allow you to make a day of your library visit. Enjoy lunch or tea at the Courtyard Restaurant. The Boston Public Library offers public tours highlighting the architecture, and the works of famed sculptors and painters. The tours last about an hour and is free without having to schedule ahead.
