A Welcome Message from Dr. Carla Hayden,
Chief Executive Officer
Season for Tradition
The other day I met a young mother who told me it is part of her weekly routine to check-out books and attend Mother Goose Baby Steps at the Canton Branch with her daughter. Her time spent with her daughter made me think of all the different routines and traditions we share.
The Pratt is definitely a part of the fabric of this great city. It is our tradition to show appreciation to the people who make this institution thrive – our wonderful patrons. Your steadfast support cannot be measured. From the simple thank yous we receive to voting us one of the “Best” in Baltimore Magazine and the City Paper, we sincerely appreciate it.
Our mission of promoting lifelong learning will continue as long as our “doors” are open. This year, we embraced new programs and technology: E-Readers available for check-out, expanding the Virtual Supermarket program, and the opening of a new cafe at the Southeast Anchor Library. We can’t wait to share with you the new projects for 2012.
So as this year closes, on behalf of the entire Pratt Library family, THANK YOU for your patronage!
