After Abraham died in 1983 his pieces were put away, where many of them lay until 2013. Since then Abraham’s son, Robert, has had pieces from the collection exhibited at nearly 20 venues in New England and beyond. Also on exhibit are professional photographer Scott Sutherland’s photographs of the artwork. The artwork is on display throughout the Main Library - in the lobby, on the second floor, in the Cambridge Room, and in the Children's Room.

    • Books Unite Us: Drop-in for Banned Books Week (O'Neill)

      O'Neill Branch, 70 Rindge Ave., Cambridge, MA 02140

      Books unite us. Books encourage boundless exploration and allow readers to spread their wings. Stories give flight to new ideas and perspectives. Reading—especially books that set us free—expands our worldview. Censorship, on the other hand, locks away our freedom and divides us from humanity in our own cages. Celebrate the right to read and speak out against book bans and censorship! Activities will include button-making, postcards, and more. Every September, libraries, schools, bookstores, museums, and other locales around the world celebrate the right to read during Banned Books Week. At its heart, Banned Books Week is a celebration of the freedom to access ideas, a fundamental right that belongs to everyone and over which no one person or small group of people should hold sway. Banned Books Week is a celebration of books, comics, plays, art, journalism, and much more. https://bannedbooksweek.org/
