Established in 1852, the Boston Public Library is scheduled to open its newly renovated streetscape, Café and radio studio.

From the BBJ:

The library’s central branch this Saturday will unveil the second phase of its $78 million renovation of the Johnson Building, which opened at 700 Boylston St. in 1972. The renovation’s first phase, which included a new children’s library, teen central and reference space, debuted last year.

The color scheme of the new sections primarily features blues, greens and a red-orange color aptly named “tawny daylily,” which were inspired by the John Singer Sargent murals at the McKim Building.
