BOOK IT TO BOSTON’S NEWEST LIBRARY

Much more a museum than a bookworm’s stacks, Boston’s new MARY BAKER EDDY LIBRARY trumpets thought and spirituality. A three-story walk-through stained-glass globe — aka Mapparium — highlights the new cultural center, which also includes a Hall of Ideas presenting great quotes in world history. Visit on a Sunday when actors impersonate orators like Thomas Jefferson and Mahatma Gandhi. (888) 222-3711, www.marybakereddylibrary.org
