Lynn Public Library is one of several local lending institutions featured in the Mass Book Trails app. The program, developed by Massachusetts Center for the Book (MCB), has added a Gateway City Library Trail to its offerings.
“Lynn Public Library is celebrated on the trail for providing democratic access to reading and 21st century gateways to opportunity for their patrons through digital connectivity and programming that enhances life-long learning and cultural assimilation,” Massachusetts Center for the Book said in a statement.
Available on the web and as a free download, Mass Book Trails was launched in 2017 with two literary walking tours in Boston and two statewide trails: Literary Museums of Massachusetts, and African American Writers Heritage Trail. Additional tours are being added as libraries have accepted MCB’s invitation to develop their own local literary, cultural, and historic tours.
“This trail underscores the unique history, architecture, and attributes of each Gateway City library,” said Sharon Shaloo, executive director of Mass Center for the Book.
