Messages from the Marathon Memorial
Exhibition Location: Entrance and 2nd Floor, Glass Building
For ten weeks after April 15th, 2013, a makeshift memorial took shape at the site of the marathon bombings on Boylston Street. On June 25th, city officials, archivists, and volunteers took down the memorial and sent the memorabilia to the City of Boston Archives to be preserved. This exhibition features select pieces from the Marathon Memorial, courtesy of the City of Boston Archives.
The Cambridge Public Library is hosting three events to commemorate the Marathon Bombing.
