<p>The Connolly Branch of the Boston Public Library boasts a collection of more than 40,000 items, with nearly half of them in Spanish.</p>
<p>"Spanish is what we're known for," says Jane Bickford, the branch librarian.</p> <p>The library is housed in a 1932 building that has been restored to near original condition. The 20-plus foot plaster ceiling of the main room is decorated with rosettes and geometric patterns.</p> <p>In addition to the collections and resources, the branch has a 150-person lecture hall. There is a stage and sound system. Non-profit organizations are welcome to use the space by arrangement with the librarian. For-profit groups may rent the hall after hours.</p>
