Boston Libraries, Archives Commemorate Marathon Attack

One year after the tragic Boston Marathon bombings, the city’s libraries and cultural institutions are helping to preserve this painful moment in recent history and helping local residents reflect.

Others began working almost immediately after last year’s Marathon to preserve the memories and associated artifacts of the people who experienced the bombings.
